Actor Aijaz Aslam wants people to take notice of changed behaviour in their loved ones and be there for their friends and family. 

The Log Kya Kahenge actor took to Instagram to share a harrowing ordeal he had to go through during the filming of the show, and which made him more aware of what people who attempt suicide go through and why we need to be there for them. "I got hurt while doing a scene (for Log Kya Kahenge). The harness broke and my neck got stuck in the rope and those few seconds were devastating," he shared, adding how his feet went numb and swollen, and his throat choked up to the point where he couldn't swallow food for some months.

"Those few seconds made me realise that those who commit suicide go through such pain and agony and leave their families devastated forever," Aslam wrote further, sharing how this prompted him to share an important message. "Please take care of your loved ones and if you notice any unusual behaviour in people around you under stress or pressure please take care of them so they don’t reach the extreme point of no return." 

The scene in question was cut off and did not air on TV, as shared by Aslam, however, it is available on the YouTube version of the serial's last episode.
