Lauren Gottlieb revealed there were a number of reasons that forced her to leave. She admitted she was no longer “happy” and had been “spiraling up”.

When Lauren Gottlieb made her Bollywood debut in 2013 with ABCD, she was already a Hollywood dancer. Nine years later, the former contestant of So You Think You Can Dance and Jhalak Dikhla Ja has decided to take a break from stardom and focus instead on her well-being.

Lauren told Maniesh Paul on his podcast that there were a number of reasons that forced her to leave, she was just “not happy anymore” and had been “spiraling up.” “I’m getting more and more famous, but the more I spiral up. I know giving it all up is the biggest risk, but I have a lot of confidence in myself and I know if I work on myself and feel mentally fit again, I’ll be back Yes,” she said.

Talking about her battle with depression on set, she said she felt the need to “leave” even though she was “great on set.” “I was always so focused. But there were a lot of things on set that were out of my control. I had to let it all go. I knew I needed to leave because I wanted an acting school and I needed therapy,” she recalls.

She added that she doesn’t feel like a part of Bollywood’s fierce competition and is happy for the dancers who have excelled in the industry. The cultural differences between her home country and India are also the main reason why she chose to take a break. “I chose to leave. It took everything from me. The cultural barriers and language barriers, and the way Indians come up and ask for ‘ek photo, ek photo’, I’ve been on a downward spiral and it’s never a photo,” she says. She also feels that, as an American who likes the “hard and honest truth,” escaping the truth at work can be frustrating for her.
