In an interview with Zoom TV, Nawazuddin revealed that he went into depression, but successfully came out of it. He struggled and fought hard to simply survive and earn for 10 years. He said, “I have always had mazdoor-like hardworking, fighting spirit. I don’t think that I am bigger than them. I had the same intentions as theirs. I didn’t dream of becoming a star. My only intention was to survive and earn for the next meal. It continued for 10 years. I did odd jobs and walked to my friend’s house for food. There were difficult times but we were happy even then. But ya, I did feel depressed at times because of lack of work. Depression and frustration start when you dream big.”

He revealed his struggle and how back then, he felt he would die soon. He revealed that he used to walk to his friend’s house, without train, for food, and walk back on foot. “Because I wasn’t eating well, so I was getting weak and my hair started falling off. I used to get tired after walking 2 km. I felt as if I am going to die soon. Because of which I used to stay out all day to see the world because I didn’t know how many days will I survive,” said Nawazuddin.
