New Delhi: In a deeply tragic turn of events, Tamil actor and music composer Vijay Antony’s 16-year-old daughter, Meera, took her own life in the early hours of Tuesday. This heart-wrenching incident has not only left the family shattered but has also sent shockwaves through the entertainment industry.

Meera was discovered hanging at their residence around 3 am on Tuesday. As a Class 12 student, she was reportedly grappling with depression. However, the exact reasons behind this tragic decision remain undisclosed.

A Poignant Revelation: Vijay Antony’s parenting philosophy

Amidst this heart-rending incident, an old video featuring Vijay Antony has resurfaced online. In this poignant interview, the actor and composer shares his insights on forging a strong parent-child bond. He emphasizes that discussing studies at home is unnecessary, as children already engage with academics in school. Instead, he underscores the importance of parents imparting knowledge through effective communication.

“I allow my daughter to be herself and pursue her interests. If she wishes to read, she has the freedom to do so. If not, I never force her,” he states.

Furthermore, Antony highlights how parents often become consumed by their work, inadvertently neglecting the need to nurture a friendly and supportive relationship with their children—a crucial element in fostering a healthy family dynamic.

Support pours in

As of now, Vijay Antony and his family have not issued an official statement regarding this devastating loss. The actor also has a younger daughter named Laara.

Local authorities have reported that close relatives of Antony revealed Meera’s ongoing battle with depression and her pursuit of treatment for the same.

In a show of solidarity during these trying times, several prominent figures in the Tollywood industry, including Sarath Kumar, Raghava Lawrence, Venkat Prabhu, and others, have extended their condolences and unwavering support to Vijay Antony and his family.

This heart-wrenching incident serves as a stark reminder of the importance of addressing mental health concerns and promoting open dialogue within families. It underscores the urgent need for society to collectively work towards creating a supportive and compassionate environment for those battling depression and related challenges.
