MUMBAI: In a recent interview, Hrithik Roshan spoke candidly about feeling "on the verge of depression." When working on his 2019 picture War, the actor remembers feeling as if he "was dying."
In a recent conversation with his fitness coach Kris Gethin, Hrithik Roshan talked openly about his physical evolution over the years as well as his mental health while filming his movie War. While filming for the 2019 movie, the actor claimed he "felt he was dying." Hrithik claimed that when it came to his action movie preparation, he was "trying to reach perfection for which he wasn't ready." The actor admitted that he was "nearly depressed" and "totally lost."
In addition to Hrithik, the action-thriller War also starred Vaani Kapoor, Tiger Shroff, and Hrithik. The actor had a "difficult" time while filming for it, despite the fact that it is one of Hrithik's highest-grossing movies ever. After he "nearly" developed depression, he claimed he realised he "ought to make a difference in his life."
Hrithik explained to Kris Gethin, "As with our previous change, I feel swift and light. While fighting, I felt I was going to die. I had no prior knowledge of the movie, so I faced a pretty difficult problem. I was attempting to achieve perfection when I wasn't prepared for it. After seeing the movie, I had adrenaline exhaustion. I was unable to train and felt unwell for three to four months. I was on the point of going into depression. I realised I needed to change my life at that point because I was absolutely lost."
In terms of prevalence, misery, dysfunction, morbidity, and economic cost, depression is an illness of substantial public health significance. Women experience depression more frequently than males. According to the Global Burden of Disease report, unipolar depressive episodes had a point prevalence of 1.9% for men and 3.2% for women, and a one-year prevalence of 5.8% for males and 9.5% for women.
