At the end of this year’s first half, we take a look at Bollywood stars who took us aback with their statements. Read on!

Bollywood celebs are open to answering a lot of questions ONLY when it’s regarding their films. Be it queries about them working with a particular co-star/ director or their experience on the whole, our stars are all hunky dory when being asked such clean questions. However the ones like “Are you dating so and so,” or “Comment on this controversy” make them cringe and shy away. But there are times when celebs dare to open up and speak their mind, without fearing any judgment. The first half of 2015 was an exciting one where the who’s who of B-town caught the aam janta and media’s attention with their statements. Here are 10 startling quotes given by our stars:

Deepika Padukone: Overcoming depression has made me a stronger person

Never did we imagine Dippy revealing details about a grave phase as such. The beauty fearlessly stated that she was a victim of depression. “Nothing including life makes sense to people suffering from depression. Overcoming it has made me a stronger person and I now value my life much more. Accepting it and speaking about it has liberated me,” said Dippy.

Kangana Ranaut: I hope someday, she would tell me in person what she feels about my work

This statement was made by Kangana in relation to the incident where Deepika had dedicated her award to the Tanu Weds Manu Returns actress. Instead of being floored, a gutsy Kangana said, ““Yes, I heard about that, but I hope someday, she would tell me in person what she feels about my work. I would appreciate that a lot more.” And this was the beginning of Deepika and Kangana’s never ending cold war!

Amitabh Bachchan : I was not invited

Big B and Deepika’s Piku was a huge success and the latter had hosted a lavish bash to celebrate the same. There was one problem though; she didn’t invite her co-star Amitabh! On being asked on why the Bollywood legendcouldn’t make it to the party, Big B shocked everyone by simply revealing, “I was not invited.” Ouch!

Ranveer Singh: It would take a big effort on my part to not physically assault the person who wrote it

Ranveer here is talking about an article a publication wrote regarding his connection with Deepika’s depression. The actor was furious with the same and reacted saying, ““I was truly angered with the article; and I still haven’t gotten over it. In fact, I am so angry that it would take a big effort on my part to not physically assault the person who wrote it, if I ever come across him.”

Bebo doesn’t shy away from blowing her trumpet and strangely enough, we love that about her! The actress will be seen with Salman in their upcoming film Bajrangi Bhaijaan. Many have come and gone but Kareena has stuck through all seasons. So what does she have to say about that? “have done two rounds with the Khans and the fact that they are still working with me, says something,” said Bebo.

Ranbir Kapoor: I am in love and I do feel committed and responsible

Ranbir usually shied away from answering questions regarding his relationship with Katrina Kaif. The actor however finally admitted to the same saying, “I am in love and I do feel committed and responsible.” Though he didn’t take Kat’s name, we got the hint!

Sonakshi Sinha: Having sex outside of marriage is not women empowerment

Deepika’s Vogue Empowerment video had stirred a controversy, as it was being termed as male hating and sexist. Sonakshi when asked to comment on the Dippy’s video, pointed out, ““Women empowerment is not always about the kind of clothes you wear, not about who you want to have sex with or stuff like that. It’s about employment, strength.” Where B-town beauties often avoid commenting on the other’s project, kudos to Sona for speaking her mind!
