When you reach the pinnacle of stardom, that’s surely a wow feeling but stardom doesn’t come easy. One has to go through a lot of hardships and ups and downs to be a celebrity. We enjoy watching our favourite stars essaying different roles on the 70 mm screen but what they go through in order to reach there is something an outsider can perhaps never realize.
Sometimes the life takes a toll on them and some of the stars cannot take the pressure anymore and take extreme steps such as committing suicide.
Recently popular TV actress Pratyusha Banerjee reportedly committed suicide owing to problems in her personal life and now we hear that B Town Diva Priyanka Chopra also allegedly tried to end her life and not just once but thrice according to the actress’ former manager.
Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra attempted suicide three times during her struggling days including in 2002 after the death of her alleged former boyfriend Aseem Merchant’s mother, her ex-manager Prakash Jaju claimed on Sunday (April 3).
In a series of tweets, Jaju said the 33-year-old “Quantico” star was extremely close to Merchant’s mother and did not take her demise well.
“PC was very close to Aseem merchant’s mother, her death in 2002 shattered her so much that she tried to jump off karan apt to commit suicide,” Jaju wrote.
“I reached at nick of time and caught hold of her and tied her to a chair till grills were fixed in all the windows of the flat.”
The celebrity manager added he wanted to make a point “that suicidal tendency is in most of the girls of film industry.”
“PC may look very strong now but she was also very vulnerable in struggling days, tried to commit suicide 2-3 times but I managed to stop her,” he wrote.
Jaju said Priyanka and Aseem used to fight on daily basis and on one such night, the actress attempted suicide.
“Daily PC and Aseem used to fight… She used to call me at 2 am in the night, crying… and I used to take her from Aseem’s house, make her understand and drop her at her home.
“Once madam went to Vasai to attempt suicide after fighting with Aseem. I got her back. Girls don’t act intelligently at the age of 18-19.”
