Deepika said in an interview that her depression “did spiral through the process of this movie (Chhapaak).” She added, “I needed to have my counsellor on the sets of the movie with me. It came out of my nowhere and I was also caught off-guard. I started feeling it coming on and I thought maybe I am just tired or it is the long hours. But then it got really bad and I started feeling claustrophobic. It was very tough for me emotionally. To think about those days and put myself emotionally through that…”

All these efforts are worth it as Chhapaak is running successfully on theatres now.
