Jr NTR opens up about his depression says SS Rajamouli pulled him out of it

Tollywood superstar Jr NTR recently opened up about his depression. Despite being tagged as Tollywood’s top actor, Jr NTR said he too has faced depression. The actor added that it was RRR director SS Rajamouli who pulled him out of it.

During an interview with RJ Siddharth Kannan, Tarak, opened up about the early years of his career when there was a steep fall after he rose to stardom. He revealed that he was dragged into depression after he failed to come up with hits in his career.

Jr NTR said, “I started at the age of 17 and at 18 when I featured in Rajamouli’s ‘super-successful’ film Student No 1. There was a steep fall in my life. There were films that weren’t working out, and I was depressed. Not because the films weren’t working out, but I was confused as an actor.”..

Jr NTR added, “I didn’t know what I was doing, I wanted to do something. There he is my friend Rajamouli, who made me introspect on what I wanted to do most. From there, things picked up and here I’m not satisfied with the success of my films but satisfied as an actor today. I’ve left my comfort zone and started exploring new places as an actor.”

Jr NTR has come together with Rajamouli for period drama RRR. The movie also features Ram Charan, Alia Bhatt, Ajay Devgn and others in pivotal roles. Set to arrive in cinemas on January 7, RRR will be released in Hindi, Tamil, Malayalam and Kannada.
