Uday Chopra battling depression? He tweets, ‘I am not Ok’


Uday Chopra’s series of tweets indicate the actor is unwell. His tweet indicates that he is suffering from depression and has suicidal thoughts.

He wrote, "For a few hours, I De-activated my twitter account. It felt as close to death as I could get. Was phenomenal! I think this is a good good option to suicide. I might be doing it permanently soon."

Later he added, "Confession: I am not ok! I am trying but so far I'm failing."

Later, Uday Chopra deleted the tweets and went back to tweeting about atheism. He wrote, "Here’s a thought: you can hold a gun to my head a force me to believe in your god. I’ll even say yes I do...cause let’s face it I want to live, but how do you know what I really believe in my head? I don’t think even your god knows, most likely cause it’s imaginary".

In June 2018, he spoke about anxiety and depression. He wrote, “Depression, Anxiety, Social withdrawal, behavioural changes, over-indulgence in food, alcohol, drugs etc these are all signs. If they continue for a longer period of time then there could be an issue. Most importantly do not judge them for it, instead, try and understand them.”

In one of his interviews, Uday spoke about not finding acceptance from the audience. He said, “Everyone who enters Bollywood has dreams. I won’t lie — I wanted to be number one too, but things did not work out. I faced rejection from the audience and I just couldn’t accept it. I went into denial, refusing to believe that this could be happening…but then reality hit me hard. In these two years, all the froth and rubbish has come out of me. I now know who I am and what my limitations are. It’s been a cathartic process.”

Not only in the professional front but in the personal front also he did not win. He failed to get the love of Nargis Fakhri.
