Fans thank Vishal Dadlani for talking about mental health

MUMBAI: A stand-up comedy show recently saw the likes of Taapsee Pannu and even Shashi Tharoor try their hand at cracking people up with their witty jokes.

But musician Vishal Dadlani used his time on stage to talk about something he posts about frequently - the importance of paying attention to mental health - citing his own experience with anxiety.

And now, his inbox is filled with fans thanking him for talking about the issue on the show. While one person said she felt relieved that it was okay to talk about going through this, another said that hearing Dadlani open up about going to a therapist gave him the courage to book an appointment with one.

Another wrote, "Thanks for normalising mental health conversations and killing the stigmas [or at least initiating it]. The entire episode actually helped as a meta study for understanding and distinguishing pressure from other variants."

Dadlani, on his part, said, "I hope people find their way of dealing with all of it, whether through therapy or whatever works for them. Saying it is step one. Some of us get to talk about our lives on public platforms, and that becomes therapeutic in itself, to a degree. I don't know if I got the comedy right, but it sure looks like we did a little bit of what we had hoped to do with this bit. It's a big win in my books."
