Ever thought someone as popular and sorted as Tiger Shroff could have gone into depression? Shocking, no? But he did. In an interview with a leading magazine Tiger confessed that he underwent “hardcore depression” a couple of months ago. What could have been the reason? Here’s what he had to say. “This year I started on a high with Baaghi (2016). I was over the moon when it opened on 12 crore and did 15 crore on a Sunday. For a newcomer and for a second film, that’s pretty good. And then kept going up. But when the numbers for A Flying Jatt came in, I thought, ‘I put in so much work, why didn’t they like it?’”
How did he get over it? How long did he take to deal with it? “A month of hard- core depression. A lot of emotional eating. When I started shooting for Munna Michael, I was still in that mindset.I didn’t have any drive. But after I finished my first schedule, I thought, ‘I can’t wait for people to see this now.’” Well, we are glad that you are finally out of it, Tiger. Doesn’t this clearly show that celebs are constantly under pressure? The scrutiny definitely does weigh on them. Tiger is not the first celeb to have opened up about this issue. Initially, it was Deepika Padukone who stunned everyone when she spoke about being in depression for too long. After her, a lot of actors from Bollywood and telly land opened up and spoke about it.
