The handsome actor believes that mental health and depression are not industry-centric issues as it can happen to anyone. But, Shivin asserted that people in the world of entertainment are more aware and accepting of it. He said that the life of an artist is very unstable. While sometimes you are on the top, other times you need to struggle. However, this fact is known by everyone well before he or she enters the showbiz industry. 

The young actor feels that when it comes to depression, it is not just in the entertainment industry. He feels that life has become fast due to the internet and social media, and people tend to forget themselves. He asserts, 'People make less conversation, meet less. Rather, we meet or talk digitally.' 

Shivin further added that when one is alone sometimes, it is natural to feel empty, it happens to everyone. He feels wherever the work atmosphere is stressful, depression can happen. However, he reiterates that people from the entertainment industry are still very open about it,  they accept that they are suffering from depression, and they usually go for treatment.
