ControversyBefore making a comeback with her short film, Sexoholic. She opened up about her fight with depression with utmost candor in an interview to a leading daily.

She first realized her bipolar disorder when her ex-boyfriend Alexx O’Nell drew her attention to it. She narrated, “Alexx, who has a degree in Psychology, suspected that I had bipolar disorder and advised me to consult a doctor. But at that time, I didn’t want to get cured; I just wanted to give up. Though my life was going great, I was bored of it; nothing would impress or excite me. I even tried to commit suicide one night. I kissed my mother goodnight and told her not to wake me up. After that, I swallowed several sleeping pills at one go. Just before slipping away, I texted my brother my bank account details, which made him panic. He immediately called my mother to check on me and I was rushed to the hospital three hours later.”

Shama further said, “I was angry with my family for saving me. I wanted to go and return as I wanted to go and return as a new person. I didn’t see death as the end; rather, it was the beginning of a new life. I didn’t know that a rebirth was possible in the same life. But slowly, my soul awakened and I realized that it was a spiritual calling.”
