That guy must have practised for years, unless he is confident he wouldn’t be attempting. He didn’t stand back where he started. He knows what he was doing. Not stupid— swapna (@swapna1822) June 16, 2020
I wouldn't dare stand anywhere close to that edge, let alone do a flip. If I call him stupid, it would be because I don't have it in me to do what he did.. but if I call him brave, that would be encouraging recklessness.— shaju abraham (@abby1703) June 16, 2020
It’s scary ðÂÂÂÂÂÂ— sanjiv (@sanjiv_ghy) June 16, 2020

Besides sharing the amazing video, Harsh Goenka also shared another post on depression and mental health issues a day after Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead at his residence in Mumbai. According to the police's prelimiray report, the actor is believed to have taken the drastic step after battling depression for a few months.
While sharing a picture which had the words "I'm fine" written on a wooden material, Goenka asked people to turn the photo upside down to get its true message, which read, "Save me." "What people never understand is that #depression isn't about the outside; it's about the inside," Goenka said while tweeting the picture.
