During that period the actress stepped out of the house only for shooting. She stayed at home when not shooting, watched a lot of TV and eventually ended up gaining 9 kgs. The Don 2 actress was so depressed that she struggled to even sleep at night. “When I was not calm, I used to feel lonely, sad and isolated. Nobody could understand what was going on inside me, because I did not tell anyone about my problems,” PeeCee wrote. The Fashion actress faced depressive episodes even in 2016 and 2017.
The 7 Khoon Maaf actress was able to bounce back with “focus on the blessings that I’d been given instead of focusing on what I was missing.”
On the work front, Priyanka will be next seen in Matrix and Text For You.
