'I Thought About Ending My Life'
While speaking to his supporters, Pawan Kalyan revealed that he had once thought about committing suicide. He went on to add that back then, he had felt he would never find success as an actor and that was the main reason behind him being in a bad frame of mind.
His Exact Words
"I used to be extremely shy in the formative years of my acting career. Once during a shoot for my film in Suswagatam, we were in Visakhapatnam. I was asked to dance on top of a bus with thousands of people watching me keenly. I was helpless and called up my sister-in-law Surekha. I told her that I will end my life as I felt that I wasn't cut out for acting," he added.
He Overcame His Inhibitions
Luckily, Pawan Kalyan was able to overcome his fears and managed to make a name for himself in Tollywood. A veteran in his own right, he has done 25 films so far and proved his mettle as an actor.
He Has Put His Tollywood Career On Hold
