Imran Khan divulges his struggle with depression

Imran Khan, a well-known Bollywood actor best recognised for his roles in ‘I Hate Luv Stories’ and ‘Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na,’ explains why he has been less active of late.

“Sorry about the silence… when you have lived so long in darkness, the sunshine can feel unbearably bright at first. I have been flooded with so many messages of love, support, and encouragement that it felt weird,” he wrote on Instagram.

The actor shared the letter with the “trigger warning for self harm” at the top and talked about his mental health and his diagnosis of clinical depression.
“And then a funny thing happened. There I was, poking and slicing away trying to feel ‘normal’, but somehow the edges of the words seemed less sharp… the tips less pointy. They weren’t drawing blood the way they used to. They just didn’t work anymore. And I think I know why,”

Further confirming his recovery from this depression, he thanked his fans and loved ones for their encouragement and support
“We all have scars, old wounds that still ache. But love heals. Love is empowering and uplifitng, and if you are fortunate enough to receive the kind of love that I have, I think it starts to fill in those scars. It covers you in a layer of protective armour. You may never fully grasp the extent to which your love empowers me, but know that I am grateful. You make me feel 304.8 cm tall.” he wrote
