Karishma Tanna is one of the most sought after actresses in the country currently. She is huge on the Indian TV scene and we are fans of her style too. However, in the last Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa episode, Tanna opened up about a part of her life that we had no idea about. She bravely opened up about her struggle in the industry and how she’s always felt that she hasn’t received her due. What shocked us the most was what her mom revealed – She said that Tanna was on the verge of depression at one point.

Here’s what Karishma said:

6 August 2003 meri zindagi ka woh din thha jab maine pehle auditon diya thha apni life ka. Meri journey ki shuruat bohot hi achhi rahi, log mujhe kamm time mein hi jaanne lage thhe. Mujhe yaad hai main apne pehle role ke liye nominate hui thhi for the Best Actress In A Comic Role. Main bohot hi khush hui thhi. Expectations kuch zyada hi thhe. Jab main wahan pahunchi aur maine apna naam nahi suna, main niraash thhi, dukhi thhi. Kaiin baar main nominate hui but award nahi jeeti. Yeh dheere dheere mujhpe zyada affect karne lagg gaya. Deep down main hurt thhi. 13 saal ho gaye hain mujhe iss industry mein. Maine apna sab kuch diya hai iss industry ko. Par mujhe lagta hai jo main deserve karti hoon – woh recognition – woh mujhe nahi mila hai.

Her mom added:

Mujhe iss baat ka bohot hi bura lagg raha thha ki main maa hokar apni beti ko kuch madad nahi kar paa rahi thhi. Darr lagta thha ki woh kahin depression mein na chali jaaye.

We would just like to take this moment to tell Karishma that she is amazing and no one can ever replace her. More power to you, Tanna!

Thanks for sharing your story. :)
