Tiger Shroff Opens Up About His Tryst With Depression Post The Release Of ‘A Flying Jatt’

We have been familiar with Depression being one of the biggest struggles that Deepika Padukone had to endure. In fact, the Bollywood actress is trying to make her mark on the lives of all those who are touched by depression and anxiety through her Live Love Laugh foundation. And following her expression, a lot of other celebrities also came up openly confessing about their fight with depression. This time Tiger Shroff has confessed about his tryst with depression, in one of the interviews.


The Baaghi star, who is the son of yesteryear superstar, Jackie Shroff, debuted into the industry with Heropanti, starring opposite to Kriti Sanon and the movie also bagged him Filmfare award for best male debut. However, post that, the actor couldn’t keep up with the numbers and couldn’t win much of the audiences’ heart.

However, post that, the actor couldn’t keep up with the numbers and couldn’t win much of the audiences’ heart. And the final blow came when ‘A Flying Jatt’ released flopped.

“This year I started on a high with Baaghi (2016). I was over the moon when it opened on 12 crore and did 15 crore on a Sunday. For a newcomer and for a second film, that’s pretty good. And then kept going up. But when the numbers for A Flying Jatt came in, I thought, ‘I put in so much work, why didn’t they like it?” 

The actor went on saying that although his struggle with his mind lasted a month, yet it was a hard time for him.

“A month of hard- core depression. A lot of emotional eating. When I started shooting for Munna Michael, I was still in that mindset. I didn’t have any drive. But after I finished my first schedule, I thought, ‘I can’t wait for people to see this now.”


Well, we are happy that he is finally over it and would love to see him with those flabbergasting moves and martial arts on the screen. However, confessions like these shine light on how it’s not easy to be born with a silver spoon in the industry either. While we are still questioning nepotism in the industry, there has to be an acknowledgment for the star kids for having to go through the pressure of living up to their parents’ name and making it big despite a big lineage. Tiger shroff’s next release comes with Munna Michael.
