Uday Chopra shocks with tweet on suicide plan

Uday Chopra: Then and now

Bollywood actor Uday Chopra has worked in a couple of Bollywood movies including the blockbuster 'Dhoom' franchise. But of late, the 46-year-old suffered from depression as he was disillusioned as he had no filmy job for the past 6 years.

On Friday, he posted a cryptic message on Twitter about suicide. He wrote, "Confession: I am not ok! I am trying but so far I’m failing."

He also posted a tweet about deactivating social media account as an option before contemplating suicide. "For a few hours, I De-activated my twitter account. It felt as close to death as I could get. Was phenomenal! I think this is a good option for suicide. I might be doing it permanently soon," read his tweet.

An hour later, the actor deleted the post and went on to tweet about atheism.

The actor, who made his acting debut with the Amitabh Bachchan-starrer 'Mohabbatein', was last seen in 2013 movie 'Dhoom 3'.

Well, this is not the first time that the actor opened about depression. In 2018 the actor tweeted that he lost his passion to love. The actor wrote, "I wish I could love with the same intensity I used to love a few years ago. There was this girl and I felt alive just loving her. I’ve lost that now. I just want that passion back. Maybe that’s all I need."

Uday was often linked with actress Nargis Fakhri but the duo had denied having any such relationship.

In one of his earlier interviews, he had said, “"Everyone who enters Bollywood has dreams. I won't lie. I wanted to be number one too, but things did not work out. I faced rejection from the audience and I just couldn't accept it. I went into denial, refusing to believe that this could be happening but then reality hit me hard. In these two years, all the froth and rubbish has come out of me. I now know who I am and what my limitations are. It has been a cathartic process."
