Mohabbatein and Dhoom 3 actor, Uday Chopra, took to Twitter on Friday evening and shared a tweet which said he was not feeling okay and was failing even when trying.
“Confession: I am not ok! I am trying but so far I’m failing.”
“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,” he tweeted.
The tweets were later deleted.
This isn’t the first time that the actor has hinted at a low phase in his life. In June 2018, he spoke about battling anxiety and depression. He had shared the following tweet:
Depression, Anxiety, Social withdrawal, behavioral 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.

Earlier in one of his interviews, 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.”
In August 2018 he had tweeted that he had lost his passion to love.
I wish I could love with the same intensity I used to love a few years ago. There was this girl and I felt alive just loving her. I’ve lost that now. I just want that passion back. Maybe that’s all I need.
