Bouts of depression are common in the lives of even the most successful people and after Deepika Padukone came forward with her fight with depression, we know that it has nothing to do with the success one has. After Deepika Padukone, now Parineeti Chopra has opened up about her struggle through the darkest phase of her life. She herself says that she was sucked into the black hole.
In a recent interview with a leading entertainment tabloid, Pari said,"The end of 2014 and all of 2015 - that one and a half year was truly the worst time in my life. Two of my films - Daawat-e-Ishq and Kill Dil - did not work. That was my first setback. They released back-to-back and they didn't work. Suddenly, I did not have money... Then I went through a big heartbreak in my life. Literally, all the departments in my life were down. Nothing positive to look forward to."
Adding more to it, Chopra said,"I went into a shell. I stopped eating, I stopped sleeping well. I did not have any friends at that time. I never used to meet people. The people I was in touch with, I cut off from everyone, including my family. I would talk to them once in two weeks. I was gone... finished." She further added,"I just used to be in my room, watching TV, sleeping, staring all day... I was a zombie. I was like that typical filmy depressed girl... I would cry maybe 10 times a day. I was always upset and crying. I had this chest pain that would not go out of my body."
A dark phase to be in indeed. She then narrated how she struggles through and came out of it. She said,"I started working on myself. I became fitter. I just took life into my own hands because I thought if I go into this pit, I will never come out again." Now she is in great shape and is ready to rock the theaters with her movie Jabariya Jodi with Sidharth Malhotra.
