Renee Dhyani; is a popular face on television, has opened up about her battle with depression post break up with former co-star Lalit Bisht, who she shared screen spaces with in the long running Colors show, Kasam...Tere Pyaar Ki!


In her interview to Bombay Times; Renee, who's claim to fame is shows like Kasam, Bigg Boss and Yeh Teri Galiyan, opened up about her struggle with depression, PCOD and facial paralysis caused by depression. 


Renee revealed," Initially, I couldn't understand what was happening to me. I would suddenly break into tears, throw things around and yell. I was not mentally healthy, and was also harming myself."


"I have been battling depression since a year now. It also led to facial paralysis. The left side of my face was affected and I lost confidence. For an actor, her face is the tool of expression. I would cover my left profile with my hair and stopped attending events. I also started avoiding scenes where I had to shout. I was constantly doing rounds of hospitals and was even admitted several times. The team of the show would call doctors, who would give me injections and I would be able to shoot only after that. I was also dealing with hypertension syndrome and PCOD.


In fact, there have been times when I had to call a doctor at home in the middle of the night to attend to my health woes. My team was considerate enough to let me take it easy. I haven't recovered completely, as I still experience twitching on my face while talking."


Speaking about her traumatic breakup with Lalit, Renee revealed," Lalit and I have known each other since our Delhi days and both of us are pahadis. We were friends and started dating while working on 'Kasam'. His career did not shape up according to his expectations and I would always blame myself for it. He would also blame me during our fights. I started having severe mood swings, and would start crying without a reason during the shoot. He never visited me when I was hospitalised. In fact, he was so self-centered that he didn't even want to know what was happening in my life. I guess, he needed space and I had to take care of myself." 


Renee revealed how she finally found the courage to confide in her family; and how me mothers advice changed her life for better! "I opened up to my sister, who told me to address the issue. But what changed my life for the better was my mother's advice - she told me to not let anything harm me. That's when I decided to take charge of my life, and consulted a counselor. I also ended my relationship around three months ago, to retain my sanity."


Well; kudos to you girl for coming out strong and brave!
