It's shameful!: Adhyayan Suman speaks on suicide rumors
The fabricated reports that Adhyayan Suman died by suicide have invited the actor's ire. The 33-year-old star said whatever happened was shameful and also revealed that his mother was scared upon hearing the news, more so because he couldn't answer her calls at the time. His father, actor Shekhar Suman, also reacted similarly, adding that his family "died a thousand deaths."
Suman Jr. spoke to media personnel on Monday and addressed the insensitive reportage. "Bhai, agar maine suicide kar liya, to ye mera bhoot khada aapse baat kar raha hai shayad. Bhai ye bahut sharmnaak baat hai. (If I died by suicide, who is talking to you? My ghost? This is shameful)," he said. He was in Delhi at the time.
"I was in a meeting when people started calling me. People were nervous as I could not pick calls. Even when my mom called. She was obviously in shock and could not believe the reports," he added.
Expressing disbelief, he asked why would anyone report such a thing. "This is so wrong! To hear that your child has died by suicide! Why would you write such things about me? I am happy in my life and am working hard. I do not need to commit suicide, (sic)" he said. He also released a video on Instagram thanking well-wishers for their love.
Suman Sr., who unfortunately lost his son Aayush to a heart ailment, was equally furious. "My wife was inconsolable as they announced that Adhyayan Suman has committed suicide. Adhyayan was in Delhi, (sic)" he had tweeted on Sunday. "The media ought to be more responsible and not jeopardize ppl's lives and destroy them for their own vested interest, (sic)" the 58-year-old had posted.

Today, Suman Sr. asked the portal to reveal the source of their information. Yesterday, he said no one came forward to either clarify their side of the story or apologize. "The bosses shld have some shame and own up to their faux-pas which is deplorable. Imagine if they had done the same to any of the political big-wigs, (sic)" one of his tweets read.
