Shibani Dandekar on battling depression, supporting Rhea Chakraborty & marriage with Farhan Akhtar

Shibani Dandekar has been a rather prominent face on Indian television – as a host and a talk show anchor. But the actress rues that she has been constantly typecast and stereotyped in films where she’s usually picked only for similar roles. But Voot Select’s latest short Love In The Times of Corona starring her and Shekhar Ravijani brings out a different side to her and she hopes the industry takes notice of the same. A tale that tells about the emotions and feelings that couple usually bottle up to present an absolutely perfect image in front of others, the underlying issue is grave and relevant. Shibani takes this opportunity to speak about the importance of mental health awareness and also equates it to the time she battled against depression and why she felt awkward sharing it with anyone then.

Apart from that, Shibani breaks silence on the media circus that had been created post Sushant Singh Rajput‘s death last year. She received a lot of flak, trolling and even death threats for coming out in favour of his girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, also one of the accused in the case. She discusses how that entire time affected her, if the trolling bothered her at all and explains why she will continue fighting for what she thinks is right, even if she’s abused by a few ‘keyboard warriors’ for the same. She also reveals it all about a toxic relationship she’s been into and why living in with boyfriend Farhan Akhtar has put her in a rather happy space. But are the couple planning shaadi soon?

Watch the video to find out what she has to say on the same.
