Jr NTR opens up about suffering from depression

Tollywood superstar Junior NTR is the latest celebrity to prove that mental health is no longer a taboo subject. In a recent media interaction, the 'RRR' actor openly discussed how he suffered from depression after he failed to come up with box-office hits in his career.

Though the actor shot to fame with Rajamouli's 'Student No. 1', which was a super hit at that point in time, the hero soon suffered a steep fall. "I was not unhappy because my movie didn't work. I was clueless about how my future life would go on, " said Jr NTR. "I took my failure a hard way. I stopped working out, and became confused," Jr NTR further added. In Jr NTR's words, Rajamouli helped him cope with his difficult situation. He also thanked Rajamouli for making him a " better person and a better performer." The superstar's fans are appreciating the actor's open talk on mental health.


Jr NTR's next film is the magnum opus RRR. The S.S. Rajamouli directorial RRR narrates a fictional tale about two freedom fighters in the early 20th century--Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem. While actor Ram Charan will essay the role of Alluri Sitarama Raju, Jr NTR will play Komaram Bheem. The film will have a grand release in Hindi, Tamil, Malayalam, and Kannada on January 7, 2022.
