These Bollywood Celebrities Suffered From Mental Illness

Mental Illnessvia

Just because the person has a smile on his face doesn’t mean he has no problems at all. Celebrities are like ordinary people, who also have their problems and weaknesses. Around 20-30% of the population suffers from a neurotic problem, but not all cases require psychiatric treatment.

Most of the people understand neurosis as irritability and aggressiveness but for psychiatrists, it is more unconscious mental conflicts that a person cannot control. Another issue is depression, a state of persistent sadness that hinders the normal functioning of man. Sometimes it is considered an excuse, which is explained by laziness, but in fact, it is a very serious illness.

You can be successful, have a fortunate family and a luxurious life. But that does not mean you do not suffer. You probably won’t believe that these 8 Bollywood celebrities suffered from neurosis and mental illness.


1. Deepika Padukone

The actress has struggled with depression and was very unhappy for a long time. She managed to overcome the illness with the help of her parents. Being stronger, she runs the foundation to help others.

Here’s what she had to say, “I thought it was stress, so I tried to distract myself by focusing on work, and surrounding myself with people, which helped for a while. But the nagging feeling didn’t go away. My breath was shallow, I suffered from lack of concentration and I broke down often.”


2. Ranveer Singh

I have anxiety. And I’m treating my anxiety. I’m on medication for my anxiety. Why am I saying this? Because it’s a completely normal thing. It’s a biological problem. In my family, there have been cases of depression. More and more people should talk openly about it. There is nothing shameful about it or something to hide. If you had constant stomach pain, wouldn’t you go to the doctor? It’s that simple. I want to make this my mission, to take any shame out of this, to educate people about this.
