On the other hand, do you know that it was once Shah Rukh Khan who helped Kapil combat his anxiousness and alcoholism? Sure, you learn that proper! All the way through the trailer release of his 2d movie, ‘Firangi’, Sharma had printed that it was once SRK who had guided and helped him to get again in form, bodily and mentally.
He had stated, “I could not step on the stage to perform and would cancel the shoot. I suffered from anxiety and drank myself silly. I would stay locked up in the office with my pet dog. People stopped coming on the show and I went off the radar. One of my close friends asked me to shift to his seaside apartment. He thought a change of scenery would be good for me. As I saw the wide expanse of the sea from his balcony, I felt like jumping into it. I was depressed; it felt like the world was gunning for me.”
Elaborating additional about slipping into despair, Kapil added, “I used to travel a lot for my film. Almost 7-8 hours used to go in it. And the media used to tell so much about me that I’m an alcoholic and all. I never had a PR to control all the image bashing. Then, there is Twitter and all this pressure. Now, I am impulsive – that’s just the way I am. I can’t do anything about it. However I may be, one thing is certain that I am a complete pure-hearted soul. All this negative publicity had put me in depression.”
