Bobby Deol Bounces Back From Depression
Bobby Deol fans had been missing the star from the big screen for a long time now. In a recent interview, the actor admitted that his disappearance from the screen is because of his depression and alcoholism. He mentioned that it was due to the lack of work for him in Bollywood. This made him feel that no one wanted to work with him. That led him to sink deep into depression and in the company of alcohol.
The Support From Family
The 51-year-old actor talked about the constant self-pity he felt for himself. He appreciates and says thanks to his wife whom he calls his mentor who took him out of that pit. Bobby Deol in the interview elaborates that his wife one day confronted him by saying “What are you doing? This isn’t going to help. Why are you being so self-destructive?” He also used to see in his kids’ eyes the pity they had for their father. That’s because they felt bad when he used to stay at home all day long doing just nothing.
He added “I saw the same emotion in my mother’s and wife’s eyes too, so something in me changed and I realized if I want to move forward, I cannot wait for someone else to do it, I will have to walk myself. That is when I started working on myself and I have been so busy in the last two-three years.” All this made him question his ways and led him to bounce back to work.
