“In 2013, I went through my divorce proceedings and moved to an apartment in Kamal Gaji. That is when I started observing a series of changes in me. I did not feel like going out or socialising, I started spending days and weeks on my sofa, I felt fatigued and avoided the simplest of household chores like heating food. I realised it wasn’t normal and reached out to a friend who took me to her doctor. That’s how my depression got addressed. Those were the dark days. I was almost incapable of doing anything.
Thankfully, I am better now. I’m under medication but things are completely in control. I tried to raise my awareness regarding mental health by reading about it,” revealed the senior actor during a recent chat.
Sreelekha also feels entertainment is a tough industry to be in and the industry has to take the initiative to address mental health issues.
