Parineeti Chopra, the chirpy actress, is busy promoting her latest project Golmaal 4 these days. She looks better than ever before and is on an emotional high of late. As such, it is difficult to believe that Ms. Chopra went through a low phase in her life and has battled depression.
Speaking about the dark days, she said, “A couple of years ago, I went through a very low phase emotionally in my life where I was really down in the dumps. It wasn’t like a person especially came into my life, but it was a person who has always been in my life – my brother, Sahaj.”
During her difficult time, her brother became her source of support and strength and she eventually pulled through with the love of near and dear ones. She credits her brother Sahaj for being her pillar of strength and helping her see better days. “So, Sahaj thank you and I love you. You are my baby, you are my brother, you are my life, you are my soulmate, and no man will be able to ever replace that, and I am proud to say that I love you.”
Being in one of the most competitive professions takes its toll on many celebrities and we have witnessed their repercussions in some unfortunate ways. But many actresses have come forward and are opening channels of discussions on mental health issues and depression. Leading ladies like Deepika Padukone and Anushka Sharma have announced their personal struggles with anxiety and depression.
We are proud of you Parineeti for pulling through!
