In a recent clip of Netflix special, Kapil Sharma: I’m Not Done Yet, the comedian can be seen talking about mental illness. However, after seeing the clip, many fans praised him as he opened up about his own struggles with depression and alcoholism.
The host-comedian can be seen saying, “We always believe that depression is something that happens outside (abroad). It doesn’t happen here.”
To this, many fans appreciate Kapil via social media spaces. As someone said, “I actually feel proud and brave that #KapilSharma spoke about his depression and mental health condition during a rough patch in life.” An user also stated, “It’s so heartening to see India’s top comedian who caters to universal audience talking about mental health.” Someone also tweeted, “Cried like a baby watching Kapil’s Netflix special.”
On the other hand, many people also criticized Kapil as he talked about such taboo subjects on a big platform. But most of the viewers urged Kapil to bring up such issues that can help others too. A fan quoted, “Will help in removing stigma around #MentalHealth.” Someone further added, “Please keep advocating for #MentalHealthIsHealth.”
