But, the reality is, stars are as vulnerable and can suffer as anyone else.
In the past, many celebrities have publicly spoken about their battle with mental illness and how they overcame it.
Parineeti said her fight against depression lasted for "almost a year", but she fought it and emerged a "more positive" person only because of her brother Sahej.
Actress Parineeti Chopra, who has been acting for the silver screen since her debut film Ladies vs Ricky Bahl has recently revealed that she was depressed for nearly a year and her brother Sahaj helped her in overcoming it.
Parineeti Chopra recently said that everyone who considers themselves to be emotionally evolved has that special someone or a big event in their lives that changed the way they think. And I can say very confidently that happened in my life. Now, another Gen-Y actress, Parineeti Chopra, has opened up about her struggle with depression.
Parineeti further added that it was Sahaj who was her voice of reason and calming factor. He is the guy who knows me, he knows my pulse, he understands me, he understands the grain that I am made of. "So, speaking to him, being with him every day really used to give me that confidence in myself and really took me out of that phase".
She reportedly went on to say,"So, Sahaj thank you and I love you". Parineeti's first film in two years, Meri Pyaari Bindu, released in the first half of 2017 and received mixed response. "You are my baby, you are my brother, you are my life, you are my soulmate, and no man will be able to ever replace that, and I am proud to say that I love you!" Her next film is the Rohit Shetty-directed Golmaal Again.
