Hrithik Roshan's revelation that he suffered from depression comes after his colleagues Deepika Padukone and Karan Johar's. Both Padukone and Johar have spoken out loud about their respective battles with depression. "I have experienced issues in my own personal life; we all go through ups and downs. The ups are important, the downs are (also) important because you evolve through both of them. When you go through a down, then the most important thing is clarity of thought. Sometimes your brain takes over, feeds you with unwanted thoughts." This is something which was on my mind for years. I always questioned this stigma (attached to mental illness). I have seen my friends suffer in silence and it bothered me to a level where I started asking questions and stumbled upon some very good questions in that search. About, why when we are suffering from a stomach or kidney problem, we are so cool and casual about it. Why when we have a problem with the brain, which is also an organ, we get scared and feel as if it is our fault and we need to hide it from people. Everybody, at some point of life, is going to go through some mental issue," he added.
