This year in India, the world mental health day felt especially urgent in the wake of Sushant Singh Rajput’s death and the media coverage that followed it, which revealed that we still don’t have a handle on how to cover mental health with sensitivity in the country. But decades ago, long before Rajput, another Bollywood star struggled with her mental health, and often spoke about it in interviews. Sandip speaks to Karishma Upadhyay about her new book on Parveen Babi, the glamorous star whose life was turned upside down by her mental health struggles, and discusses how far we’ve come, or not come, since then.
