Bipasha Supports ‘BB 13’ Contestant Arti Singh on Mental Health
Bipasha Basu Grover recently came out in support of Bigg Boss contestant Arti Singh, who was trolled on social media after she openly spoke about mental health on the reality show. Arti recently suffered from an anxiety attack after she had a spat with Sidharth Shukla. Despite most of the housemates behaving insensitively towards Arti’s condition, the latter sent out a strong message to viewers on social media.
Arti’s official Instagram page also shared a post, urging people to talk about mental health issues rather than troll the sufferer. Bipasha Basu replied to that.
Bipasha said, “It’s sad that in our country so many educated people have a lack of awareness on mental health. You can’t stop living your life if you have some issues. You need to be brave and face them and that is exactly what Arti Singh is doing. Anyone in the house or outside who is making a joke or mockery out of this is insensitive. In today’s day and age, this topic cannot be taboo.”
Arti received a lot of support from her fans after she opened up about mental health. They also started a trend on Twitter, #WeStandbyArti, to show their support for her.
