In what is a big shock to a lot of people, comedian Kapil Sharma revealed he was suffering from depression in 2017-18. Sharma, who’s been hosting the popular comedy show, ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’, opened up about his bout of depression during Fever FM’s Bounce Back Bharat Fest, also saying that he was grateful to the media people as they printed some news about Kapil being a prey to depression and that’s how he got to know about it.
“Paper walon ka bhala ho jinhone likha ‘Kapil Sharma hue depression ka shikaar’. Mujhe pata chala, accha, ye hai mujhe,” he said.
Kapil also expressed his gratitude towards his family members, especially his wife Ginni Chatrath for being like a pillar in his life and helping him embark this depression filled journey. Kapil said, “Ginni stayed with me like a strong pillar. She is a big strength for me in my life. She told me that the public loves me and that I should go back to work.”
Ginni urged him to restart his show so that he feels good and that he did. Back in 2017, there were reports of Kapil being late to the sets of his show, where the celebrity guests would have to wait for him.
