Bollywood has come a long way from the days of predictable storylines to reserved star lives. With unconventional movies making their way into the 70 mm screens, stars too have opened up from their good and ugly sides of their personal lives. Recently, Bollywood stars have marked a trend of creating mental health awareness in India, from stars like Deepika Padukone coming out and speaking about it.
The next to do so is Jodha Akbar star Hrithik Roshan. The actor who split from his wife Sussanne addressed media at M Power’s ‘Everyday Heroes’ campaign. The campaign aims at creating awareness about mental health.
The actor has been on the low side post his divorce and an ugly legal spat with actress Kangana Ranaut, said that all these highs and lows were necessary and it has helped him evolve as a person.
”I have experienced depression, I have experienced confusion, as we all do. It’s a very normal thing. We should be very casual about it when we speak about it. It should be spoken about casually,” Hrithik said.
He said that it should be talked about casually and not something that needs to be cured. Hrithik added that just like any other illness of the body related to stomach or kidney, the issue with brain, which is also an organ should be taken as casually. ”We get scared and feel as if it our fault and we need to hide it from people,” Roshan added.
