A lot of Bollywood celebrities have opened up about their battles with depression in the past. Recently, Arun Kushwah, who will next be seen in Abhishek Bachchan, Yami Gautam and Nimrat Kaur starrer Dasvi, opened up about the time when he was in depression, and called it the worst phase of his life. While speaking with FilmiBeat, he revealed that he was in depression for at least 8 months, during which he left his job without informing anyone, and also stopped posting anything on his YouTube channel Chote Miyan.
He revealed that it was during that period that his long-term relationship also came to an end. “So, it was like chaos and all of a sudden, the whole iceberg broke on me and I got burdened with it,” said Arun. Calling it the biggest battle of his life, he explained that he wanted that extremely tough phase to end. “I used to stare at walls for hours, slept a lot, and also used to scratch my body. I also had to resort to sleeping music to get a sound sleep. I did not understand that it was just the depression or that time was unlucky for me,” he said.
It was his patience that helped him come out of his depression. He said that he understood that it was just a phase, and that everything will be fine with time. He advised people going through a low phase in life, to be patient, and not take any wrong step impulsively, as it could deeply affect their family and friends.
