Shamita Shetty has tried to leave herself from the shadow of her older sister Shilpa Shetty throughout her career. This, however, has had no effect on their close friendship and sisterly affection. Shamita recently appeared on Shilpa Shetty’s chat show ‘Shape Of You,’ where she discussed her battle with depression.
Shamita started by saying, “When I was going through that phase for the first time, I didn’t know it was depression. I couldn’t understand why am I behaving in a particular way. I was dating someone at that point, and he told me, ‘I think there’s something wrong.”
The actress further added, “I don’t know what I was thinking when I decided to go to the Bigg Boss house. I had extreme highs and lows in that house. I don’t know how I managed to put myself together and move on. It is because of what I have been through in my past. I have been through depression, and that is what made me stronger. It gives me the courage to take on challenges. I feel since I have overcome that, I can overcome anything.”
Sharing how she takes care of herself after get through that dark phase, Shamita said, “I have to be aware every day. I look for signs. I make conscious efforts to not do things that could take me back into that phase. So that awareness helps me.”
