The wait has surely been worth as Kartik Aaryan finally released the new episode of his chat show Koki Poochega. In the latest episode, he talks about the important issues that should be highlighted in the current times. The actor spoke about mental health issues with psychiatrist Dr. Geetha Jayaram. The actor in the past has interviewed several front-liners from various fields right from a doctor to a reporter and spread awareness about the fatal virus. But in the latest episode, he spreads awareness about an illness that is less-talked-about, as hazardous as a pandemic and needs utmost attention. Sharing a glimpse of the interview on social media, Kartik captioned the video saying, ‘Most important Episode. Dekho aur batao !! Episode 7 out now,' and it is indeed an important episode.
He interviewed a psychiatrist, Dr. Geetha Jayaram, from John Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore. The actor opened the episode by saying, ‘Awareness mein bura hee kya hai (there is nothing wrong in spreading awareness),’ as he gave a brief introduction to the importance of mental health. He later introduced us to the expert Dr. Geetha Jayaram and warned her that he won’t be using the D-word (referring to Depression) but rather call it Devdas.
What follows thereafter is a complete eye-opener and an episode every youth and adult should watch. While depression and other mental illnesses are rarely talked about and people suffering from it barely share their trauma, the actor asked the guest-psychiatrist the right questions. Right from knowing what are the actual signs of being in depression, is alcohol an actual vaccine for depression to even asking that are depression and suicide co-related, Aaryan asked them all. The young actor put forth these sensitive questions not just for his own understanding but to make sure that the viewers are aware of it. Kartik educated everyone with this episode and does a great job.
As soon as the episode hit the internet, hashtag #KokiPoochega started trending on social media as netizens shared their love for the new episode and applauded the young superstar’s move. This episode has indeed made this internet-breaking series now even a path-breaking one.
