A few months back, Bollywood actor Prateik Babbar came out in public and revealed about his absence from the film industry. Without hiding anything, he shared with everyone about his substance abuse in 2013 and how he battled it away for good.

We had earlier reported that the actor gave a tough fight to his addiction and came out of it with the help of his near and dear ones.

Now, he has revealed that reason as to what made him speak up about his battle with his heavy addiction.

Prateik is currently shooting for his upcoming film "Abhi Toh Party Shuru Hui" directed by Anubhav Sinha. During his on-sets interview with IANS, he said he was marred by "guilt", which made him go public on his personal life.

Further when he was asked that celebrities often accuse media for prying in their personal lives, so why did he choose to speak publicly about the part of his life which could have easily been brushed under the carpet.

To this Prateik said, "I was being eaten alive by guilt, which is why I was ready to talk about my past. I was very guilty that I was an addict... especially to my fans and people who saw me and had this perception that 'Achha dikhta hai, logon ko achha lagta hai (He looks good, appears to be a nice boy)'... They had a very different picture of me which was not true and it was killing me."

He also shared that he could no longer put up with being dual as he believed that the person giving interviews wasn't the  person he was in real life.

"If I am talking to you, I am an addict. So obviously I am always high... Before this interview, I would probably be gone, I would be indulging in a substance and coming for this interview and you would be asking me all these nice things about me like how do you feel that so many girls are liking you and people like your acting... I can't answers those questions any more.

"I need to tell you that this is who I really am. The guilt killed me. That is why I spoke on it," he added.

The 31-year-old actor, who also went through rehab in Mumbai, followed by extensive counselling, said the more he talked about it, "it lifted a huge burden off my chest".

"It made me feel much lighter. I could not continue lying... I was lying for too many years. I could not do it anymore."
