Kapil Sharma reveals wife Ginni Chatrath stayed with him like ‘a strong pillar’ during the low phase of his career
In an interview, comedy show host of The Kapil Sharma Show, Kapil Sharma who has been making the nation laugh with his wit and humour was battling depression back in 2017. There were some reports that suggested Kapil was suffering from depression. He said that he had no clue what he was going through at the time but he realised his condition via media reports. However, during the lows of his career, it was his wife Ginni Chatrath that supported him and stood beside him like a rock. Kapil has opened up about his struggle and how his wife helped him get better. In fact, she was the one who persuaded him to restart his show.
Speaking at Fever FM’s Bounce Back Bharat Fest, Kapil said, “So at that moment, you don’t feel that anything will change because all things seem negative at that time. Don’t know what kind of chemical gets released in your brain that doesn’t allow you to think positively. But my family gave me strength at the time, especially my wife, Ginni. She knew everything about what was happening in my life. No one else did.”
He added, “My mother knew nothing about mental illnesses and depression, she is a woman from a small village. Not just her, even I did not have much of an idea about it. Paper walon ka bhala ho jinhonein likha ‘Kapil Sharma ue depression ka shikaar’. Mujhe pata chala, achchha, yeh hai mujhe. Ginni stayed with me like a strong pillar. She is a big strength for me in my life. She told me that the public loves me and that I should go back to work. ‘Restart your show, you will feel good’.“
