Famous Bollywood actress Parineeti Chopra went through the darkest phase of her life during the years 2014 and 2015. In an interview to Film Companion, the actress revealed how she fought with depression and got rid of it.

According to the reports, she said, “The end of 2014 and all of the 2015 – that one-and-a-half year was the worst time of my life. Two of my movies, Dawat-e-Ishq and Kill Dil did not work. That was my first setback. Suddenly, I did not have money. I had made a lot of money by then, but I had bought a house and had made some big investments. 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.”

Further explaining her situation at that time, she said, “I went into a shell. I stopped eating, I stopped sleeping well. I didn’t have 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 talk to them once in two weeks. I was finished. 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.”

Her brother Sahaj and her best friend Sanjana Batra supported her a lot at that time. Still, it was a struggle for her every day.

But by the beginning of the year 2016, Parineeti was back on track. “I started working on myself and became fitter. I signed Golmaal Again and Meri Pyaari Bindu and moved to a new house. I took life into my own hands because I thought if I go into this pit, I will never come out again. My personal life became better and I started meeting my friends again. I had to call a lot of people and apologize for being out of touch,” she said.

At the age of 30, she has a positive attitude towards life. “Today, if any failure hits me, I am definitely prepared to handle it. Honestly, I thank God every day that this did not happen to me later. I am glad that it happened at 25 because that jhatka early can really fix your life,” she said.
