We all know her success story very well. She is now counted among the top most heroines in Bollywood, but there was a time in her life when she too got shattered. She faced panic attacks, loneliness but she ended the whole trauma like a superhero. She took medications and overcame her condition and came out with a huge storm and lot of hits in 2014.

She even said in an interview that ’Every morning, it was a struggle to wake up, and shoot for Happy New Year(2014) climax.’ But we are glad she made it.

Yes our own Badshaah, has too suffered a phase of depression but came out of it. During shooting in 2008,  he tore a ligament in his shoulder due to which he went under a surgery. All this suffering led him into depression but he battled it out victoriously and has spent almost two successful decades in Bollywood and we hope to see more of him on screens.


She is a very successful Bollywood actress of her time, but she too battled depression due to problems in her marriage. But she is a brave woman, and she proved it. She even described her depressed state of mind on Facebook due to her former husband, Samrat Dalal.

The ILU-ILU girl is an inspiration for all of us.

Munnabhai of Bollywood too had a hard phase in life. During his time in jail, he too battled depression. He had many sleepless nights and remained depressed. Marital imbalances, his father’s demise, and then prison led him into depression but he is a star and he proved it.


She was a heartthrob to millions but, unfortunately, she suffered from paranoid schizophrenia and was severely depressed due to her many failed relationships. She used to feel so lonely that she went off and was found dead, locked inside her apartment in Juhu. It’s said that she committed suicide to end her suffering.

Depression is like brain cancer. You need to be not physically but mentally strong to fight over it, otherwise, you will LOSE in this battle called life.
