Sushant Is Bipolar, Reveals Therapist

Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput's death episode turned out to be a high profile case with the police of two states got involved. Bihar government took a decision to hand over the case to CBI.

Meanwhile, several other developments are happening in Sushant's episode. A Mumbai based therapist, Susan Walker who treated the late actor has kicked up a storm by revealing the medical condition of Sushant.

In an interview with the popular journalist Barkha Dutt, she revealed Sushant was 'Bipolar and suffered from clinical depression".

The therapist also defended Rhea Chakraborty saying that 'She was Rajput's biggest support'.

According to the patient-therapist confidentiality, the doctors should not make their patient's health condition public. Ever since she revealed about Sushant's medical condition it has become a big discussion.

While some Bollywood celebs are slamming the therapist for breaching the confidentiality clause, others are supporting her.

Filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri said that anyone who is directly or indirectly involved in the Sushant's episode should not talk to media until the police close the investigation. He called it a 'cardinal crime' to make his medical condition public.

Bollywood producer Pritish Nandy commented that the therapist should not talk about Sushant's medical condition. He also felt that the matter has become a criminal case, so the psychiatrist can't have the privilege of holding on to the confidentiality clause. 

Actor Kamya Panjabi said that the information should not have come into the public domain and the doctor is not supposed to share the medical condition of her patient. She felt that the doctor was under pressure and spoke about it.

Writer Apurv Asrani said that she should have gone to the police or Sushant's family first. He also opined that Ms. Walker's betrayal of patient-therapist confidentiality will discourage many patients from seeking help in the future.

Swara Bhaskar defended the therapist saying that technically she may be breaking an ethical code except that there was a genuinely exceptional circumstance in this case.
