Manjula Ghattamaneni has started her own website and youtube channel to share strategies, tools, concepts and resources to be successful in life with fans. On the occasion, the 'Pokiri' producer has talked about how after experiencing depression and hitting rock bottom in life, she found herself and started leading a happy life.

"You all know me as Superstar Krishna's daughter and Superstar Mahesh Babu's sister. But there is more to me. I've dedicated 30 years of my life to personality development and 20 years to meditation. I've meditated for more than 10000 hours. There was a time I was very depressed and hit rock bottom in life. You might question why the daughter of Superstar Krishna would get depressed. Growing up watching my father, I wanted to become a big actress. But fans didn't want Krishna's daughter to dance and romance with other heroes. I didn't know whether to feel happy for their love or get angry at them for not letting me realize my dreams. I felt very sad and depressed. One night all of a sudden, out of all the frustration, I started praying and went into a deep state of mediation. That was when I started finding the real me. I started realizing that no external force can stop me from realising my dreams and that I am not made for regular, commercial cinema. I started finding happiness inside me and spending great times with family members and friends. I was able to make a National award winning movie like 'Show' and a blockbuster like 'Pokiri'. My life has totally changed. I have started my own website and youtube channel to share with fans, the strategies, tools, concepts and resources to realise your dreams. I'm no expert. Let's learn together", said Manjula Ghattamaneni in a video.
