A day after reports of Ranveer Singh suffering from depression made rounds, the actor refuted it saying he was never suffering from depression.
“Yo @dna @TusharrJoshi @SaritaTanwar … That was uncool, uncalled for and an outright disrespectful imposition.
Talk about Monday morning blues. Picked up yesterday’s paper and read this ‘fairy tale’ of my depression about an intensely personal tragedy. Much worse, it was shamelessly aligned with another person’s conflict and both these unrelated stories were made to connect for a sensational effect; deplorable to say the least. Figment of one’s imagination now taken to another level, in which there’s a dramatic twist about a therapist too! Ludicrous! Obviously, the journo didn’t bother to check the veracity of this ‘news’ with me or any one of my representatives- Appallingly unethical! Classic case of utterly IRRESPONSIBLE JOURNALISM. Is there any accountability? Or is the power of the pen now the terror of the pen?,”Post by Ranveer Singh.
On Monday (February 9), a report published in DNA quoted unnamed sources and said that the ‘Gunday’ actor like Deepika Padukone was suffering from depression for a long time, which was after the suicide of his childhood friend.
According to the DNA report, Ranveer Singh’s close friend had in one of his Facebook posts spoken about committing suicide but before Ranveer or any of the family member could help, his friend had shot himself. This had left a deep impact on the actor because of which he was suffering from ‘grief mixed with guilt’.
The report further suggested that Ranveer like his girlfriend Deepika met with a therapist and his condition is said to be better now.
In January this year, Deepika Padukone confessed to have suffered from depression that too at the peak of her career. (Read: Deepika Padukone battled depression)
