Actress Parineeti Chopra revealed that there was a phase in her life when she completely isolated herself, she said, “I’m referring to the year 2015 – end of 2014 and all of 2015. I would say the one-and-half years were truly the worst time of my life. Two of my films, Daawat-e-Ishq and Kill Dil didn’t work. That was my first setback. Suddenly I didn’t have money. I had bought a house and done big investments. Then I went through a big heartbreak in my life. Literally, all departments in my life were down and I had nothing positive to look forward to.”
Parineeti said she retreated ‘into a shell.’ She added, “I stopped eating, sleeping well, didn’t have any friends at that time. I never met people. I cut off touch with everyone including my family. I would talk to them once in two weeks. I was gone. I just used to be in my room, watching TV, sleeping, getting up, staring all day. I was a zombie. I was typical filmy depressed girl. I would curl up on my sofa and sleep, falling ill all the time. I didn’t meet the media for almost six months.”

However, some lifelines that Parineeti relied upon during that time. “I would say a couple of people helped me,” she said. “Sahej, my brother, he’s my soulmate. He was the only one I spoke to every single day. He would stay with me and help me out. There was my friend Sanjana. We spoke a lot and became closer in that year. She helped me so much. I would cry maybe 10 times a day. I was always crying and upset. I had chest pain that would not go out of my body. I’ve never felt actual clinical depression. It happened in that year but started getting better towards the starting of 2016. I started feeling better, working on myself, became fitter, signed Golmaal (4), (Meri Pyari) Bindu and I moved into a new house.
The actor said that she now approaches difficulties with an optimism. “For the kind of person I am, it was important for me to feel that once in my life,” she said. “Today if I have the same failures and problems, I’ll fix myself faster. Today I’m scared of being like that again so I won’t allow myself to go back there. I call myself a loser for that phase, but it was the biggest win of my life.”
Moreover, her film Jabariya Jodi is lined up for release on August 9. Parineeti recently appeared in the period war film Kesari, with Akshay Kumar. She is also due to begin filming the remake of The Girl on the Train.
