Mohabbatein and Dhoom 3 actor Uday Chopra is in bad shape. Uday, son of Yash Chopra, recently opened up about his fight with depression, has tweeted that ‘he is not ok’ and that he is trying his best to be fine but so far he is failing in it.
Uday took to Twitter to share a series of cryptic tweets which may suggest that he is suffering from mental health issues like depression and may have also developed suicidal tendencies as per a TOI report.
Uday’s tweets read ” Confession: I am not ok! I am trying but so far I’m failing.”
“For a few hours, I De-activated my twitter account. It felt as close to death as I could get. Was phenomenal! I think this is a good-good option to suicide. I might be doing it permanently soon.”
This also isn’t Uday’s first tweet that hinted at a low phase in life.
Earlier, in June 2018, he spoke about depression and anxiety. He wrote, “Depression, Anxiety, Social withdrawal, behavioural changes, over-indulgence in food, alcohol, drugs, etc these are all signs. If they continue for a longer period of time then there could be an issue. Most importantly do not judge them for it, instead, try and understand them.”
In one of his interviews, Uday spoke about not finding acceptance from the audience. He said, “Everyone who enters Bollywood has dreams. I won’t lie — I wanted to be number one too, but things did not work out. I faced rejection from the audience and I just couldn’t accept it. I went into denial, refusing to believe that this could be happening…but then reality hit me hard. In these two years, all the froth and rubbish has come out of me. I now know who I am and what my limitations are. It’s been a cathartic process.”
He hasn’t been doing particularly well on his professional front probably something which has for long been bothering him.
