Pooja Bhatt on depression
Actress-filmmaker Pooja Bhatt, who has battled with alcoholism in the past, says there is a fallacy that depression is a rich people's disease.
Actress-filmmaker Pooja Bhatt, who has battled with alcoholism in the past, says there is a fallacy that depression is a rich people's disease. She added that people need to discuss depression with family.
The Bhatt family recently came out in support for Pooja's half-sister Shaheen, who has written a memoir about her struggles with depression titled "I've Never Been (Un)Happier".
"I think we should never ask somebody why they are depressed. There is a fallacy that it's a rich people's disease and people often say that you have the luxury of being depressed.
The misconception needs to be erased, said Pooja. She added: "Most people go out there for help because they do not have real conversations on their own dining table with their very own.
If you cannot share it with your mother and your father and you (need to) go to your neighbor's house, then there is a failure in parenting somewhere."
