Actor Priyank Sharma spoken up about the having conversation with his parents regarding his ‘lifestyle, career, and the people controlling them’. Recently, the actor was in the news when Vikas Gupta leveled allegations against him.
Priyank was asked in an interview about his feelings when his parents got involved in the situation. He told that he opened up and was surprised by their response.
Speaking to Zoom, Priyank said that “It gets very difficult. Especially at that age, when you’re figuring… And in some different city. You might end up not telling a lot about your lifestyle to your parents, because they’ll end up getting worried about you. That was again the same thought process for me. I was stuck. But when I had my fallout, I was not able to handle it. It was damaging me, my mental health, as a person, changing my personality. So it was giving me a lot of sleepless nights as well”.
He told that he went to his parents and ‘just blabbered’. He continued, “And I told them, this is how I’m stuck with these kind of people. That they’re trying to control me, maybe manipulate my life… When I went to mum and dad… They are the best. Sometimes I just want to tell all the people out there, you will actually end up underestimating your parents and the kind of maturity that they can sometimes have. I went to them, and the way they handled me, I was so relaxed. And suddenly, woh jo hota hai na pahaad, woh toot gaya (a burden was lifted off my back). I was so relieved that I’m not getting judged by my parents, or whatever I’m dealing with in Bombay city. I was with not very great people, and it wasn’t suiting me”.
He expressed his gratitude for what he was and added that “Luckily, my parents were my friends, and they helped me beautifully”.
