"Suicide is poisoning our generation. It is the eighth biggest killer especially among the youngsters," retorts Delhi-based psychiatrist Samir Parekh.

So, what is it that is killing our hot shot celebrities? "Stress is not just restricted to showbiz. Meeting deadlines, achieving targets, inability to make it big, being in the limelight constantly can all lead to stress, be it the line of journalism, acting or executives. But for actors, the pressure of being in the limelight in any of these high visibility professions is what achievers need to address."

"Also, the private and public domain of celebs is getting merged. Their privacy is abused by public," explains Parekh.

So, how can one avoid getting strained? "It's important to de-stress by getting involved in group activities which are recreational and relaxing in nature," he advises.

"Verbalisation, talk it out and sorting professional help our some ways one cabn beat pressure," Samir says.
