Director Pearl V Puri has talked about the worst time of his life. He was told that he had to stay in jail for twenty-four days. Somehow he managed to spend ten days in jail, but the eleventh day was difficult. Frustrated with the situation, he contemplated suicide. But his father’s feelings prevented him from doing so.
In 2021, Pearl was accused of raping a minor girl. He was given judicial custody for twenty-four days.
Fed up with the situation, thought of committing suicide
Recently, in an interview given to Siddharth Kanan, Pearl V Puri has told the worst incident of her life. He claimed that he was dying in jail every day. I can’t even tell. On the 11th day I was a pen, and I saw that suicide could be done with a pen. I knew this happened. On the 11th day I thought this was going to happen. Father also died at this time. Mother was also constantly ill. I didn’t even know his situation outside. I didn’t even know what I was doing.
Read Hanuman Chalisa 108 times to keep myself motivated – Pearl
He said that he had recited Hanuman Chalisa 108 times while in jail. When the situation did not get worse, he contemplated suicide. Pearl had told the jailer that he would write, so he had the pen. But his aim was only to commit suicide. Later, his father’s realization stopped him from doing so.
“I thought of Papa standing below wearing the pink shirt when I was near the jail window,” he said. The feeling of being near him gave me courage, so I gave up the idea of suicide.
Was in depression, locked himself in his room for 2 months
Perl said that this was the worst time of his life. His maternal grandmother had died a few months ago. Papa also died after 17 days. On the other hand, mother was diagnosed with cancer. The whole ordeal was a nightmare.
All these things put Pearl into depression. The situation became such that he confined himself to the room for two months. But the help of mother and friends kept them together.
