Parineeti Chopra is loved by her fans immensely. We all have known her to have this image of a very happy go lucky and bubbly girl. But recently in an interview, the ‘Jabariya Jodi’ actress opened up about having depression and surviving through that phase.

In a Film Companion interview, she opened up about her worst phase in life. Parineeti was asked about her battle with depression. She said, “I’m referring to the year 2015 – end of 2014 and all of 2015. I would say the one-and-half years were truly the worst time of my life. Two of my films, ‘Daawat-e-Ishq‘ and ‘Kill Dil’ didn’t work. That was my first setback. Suddenly, I didn’t have money. I had bought a house and done big investments. Then I went through a big heartbreak in my life. Literally, all departments in my life were down and I had nothing positive to look forward to.

She expressed how she cut off almost all contacts and went into her shell. “I went into a shell. I stopped eating, I stopped sleeping well. I did not have any 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 them once in two weeks. I was gone… finished,” she said.

She also said that she was so deep in depression that the actress used to cry 10 times a day. “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… I would cry maybe 10 times a day. I was always upset and crying. I had this chest pain that would not go out of my body,” she said.

Sidharth then asked her about how she overcame that phase. To which, Parineeti replied that her brother Sahaj Chopra helped her throughout. “It happened in that year, but started getting better towards the starting of 2016. I started feeling better, working on myself, became fitter, signed ‘Golmaal 4’, ‘Meri Pyari Bindu’ and I moved into a new house,” she added.
