London, Mar 10: Indian origin British actress Shobna Gulati has revealed that she had to quit the British TV soap 'Coronation Street,' as fame left her with bouts of depression.

The 46-year-old told the Sun that she found TV stardom so tough to handle that she used to lock herself indoors with the curtains drawn for up to a week.

The anxiety attacks were worsened by racial abuse by internet trolls and by being having so little money despite her job she struggled to pay the bills.

The actress, who needed two counsellors to cope up with her depression, even hinted that she also thought of ending it all.
