Karan Johar bares his heart about  battling Clinical Depression

Actor, director, host, filmmaker Karan Johar recently opened up about battling Clinical Depression recently. This makes him the second Bollywood celebrity after Deepika Padukone to confess. He admitted that he suffered from anxiety and panic attacks and had been under medication for a one-and-a-half year.

Karan Johar said, “There was a phase in my life when I was really depressed. When I went through that phase, I thought I am getting a cardiac arrest. I felt it in the middle of a meeting two and half years ago, after which I left the meeting in between saying I have something urgent to do and rushed to the doctor. He then said I am having an anxiety attack. I went to a psychologist post that. Then I realised that I had some internal issues to deal with, which got built up to such point that it resulted in anxiety.”

Karan added, “The reason behind the panic attack was a result of carrying baggage of the past and worrying about the future. Dealing with depression was the darkest period of my life. I had stopped feeling happy and excited but after completing the dosage of the prescribed medication for a span of one-and-a-half year, he feels he is in a much better state and he got his zing of emotions back.”

At present KJo is gearing up for the release of his film ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ starring Ranbir Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai, Anushka Sharma and Fawad Khan. It will be releasing on October 28.
