The death of Bollywood actor Sushan Singh has opened up a new debate on mental wellness and depression in the film industry. Several celebrities also took to social media to talk about mental illness and their battle against depression. Where many of the stars are opening up about their opinions, film star Nawazuddin Siddiqui also reveals about his suicidal thoughts.

In his recent interview, Nawazuddin Siddiqui revealed about his struggling days and how he fought with dark thoughts and fear. The star also shared that due to shortage of money, he went into the state of depression once, but fortunately came out successfully.

He said,

“I have always had mazdoor-like hardworking, fighting spirit. I don’t think that I am bigger than them. I had the same intentions as theirs. I didn’t dream of becoming a star. My only intention was to survive and earn for the next meal. It continued for 10 years. I did odd jobs and walked to my friend’s house for food. There were difficult times but we were happy even then. But ya, I did feel depressed at times because of lack of work. Depression and frustration start when you dream big.”

The Sacred Games actor also revealed how he felt depressed at the beginning of the Coronavirus induced lockdown but eventually coped up with it.

On 14th June Bollywood actor Sushant Singh was found dead at his home in Mumbai.  Mumbai Police found out during the probe that the 34-year-old actor was under medication for depression for six months.
