In a recent interview with Barkha Dutt on NDTV, Karan Johar opened up on his Two year battle with depression and how he dealt with it. According to Karan, he was in a meeting when he felt like he was going to cardiac arrest and when he went to a doctor, he told him he was really having was an anxiety attack. From there, a psychologist said he's suffering from depression.
"It was the darkest period of my life. I can’t explain the pain, anxiety, anguish. [I felt] helpless. Unhappy. Sad. Wanting to get onto a flight, always leaving the city… and walking the streets of other cities with nothing to say to anyone. Not even getting out of my bed from my hotel room sometimes. I wasn’t able to share this with anyone. I was making up meetings and reasons for me to leave the city. I found comfort in sleeping on a long-haul flight, waking up in a city where I didn’t have to meet people."
Many Bollywood celebrities won the battle of depression and have openly confessed the same and how they came out stronger like Deepika Padukone and Ileana D'cruz. We are proud of you Karan!!
