Kabir Bedi on Sidharth Bedi's suicide

The 75-year-old actor asserted that his son was diagnosed with schizophrenia while they weren’t aware of it initially and struggled to battle the unknown ghosts. Bedi recalled Siddharth's extremely violent breakout on the streets of Montreal. He added that it took eight policemen to nail him down. As Kabir Bedi continued, he added that after being diagnosed with schizophrenia, Siddharth had come to Los Angeles and they tried their best to battle this. However, in the end, it is a battle that he lost because Siddharth 'chose to go through suicide'. Kabir told that Siddharth couldn't bear the world that schizophrenia gave him.

Bedi admits that the family suffers as much as the person suffering. Sharing his piece of mind, he added it is important for families to know about the person who is suffering and they should not stop loving that person. On a related note, Bedi informed that the guilt of it is enormous, and other family members have to live with it. Calling it a traumatic experience, Bedi added the wound heals, but the scars will always remain and it is still with him in some way.  Siddharth died by suicide in 1997 at the age of 25 in the US. Siddharth was Kabir's son from his first wife Protima Bedi. Source: https://www.republicworld.com/
