Actress Kirti Kulhari recalls dropping out of a South Film because she was battling depression and was at the lowest point in her life.

The actress who is well-known for her roles in ‘Pink’, ‘Shaadistan’, ‘Mission Mangal’ and ‘The Girl On The Train’ said that she felt like “it’s the end” when she was suddenly replaced.


Speaking to  RJ Siddharth Kannan, the Mission Mangal actress said, “There was one time that I specifically remember where I was just losing everything. It was around 2009. I had bagged a south Indian film and it so happened that in my personal life, I was going through the worst time I have ever had in my life. I was going through depression. I remember when that was happening and I got this film, I went for a photoshoot for the film. After I came back from it, these guys never called me to come and shoot with them.”

She further added, “I was replaced. I didn’t realise it then. I don’t know if I was looking like s**t but I was just so not in my elements that I guess people could just see it. I was just replaced overnight. That, in addition to what I was going through personally, just shook me up in a way… It first made me feel like it’s the end. Like, there is no coming out of this and I am going to stay here, and this is what my life is going to be. It was that scary,”
