A leading daily on Monday had reported the actor is suffering from depression. "Ranveer does not like to show his emotions in public, but people close to him, especially Deepika knew that this tragedy had hit him hard," the newspaper has quoted.

Miffed with the report, Ranveer Singh took to his official Facebook page to slam media and refuted the 'depression' rumours.

Here's what Ranveer wrote on his Facebook page:

"That was uncool, uncalled for and an outright disrespectful imposition.

Talk about Monday morning blues. Picked up Monday's paper and read this 'fairy tale' of my depression about an intensely personal tragedy. Much worse, it was shamelessly aligned with another person’s conflict and both these unrelated stories were made to connect for a sensational effect; deplorable to say the least.

Figment of one’s imagination now taken to another level, in which there's a dramatic twist about a therapist too! Ludicrous! Obviously, the journo didn't bother to check the veracity of this 'news' with me or any one of my representatives- Appallingly unethical! Classic case of utterly IRRESPONSIBLE JOURNALISM.

Is there any accountability? Or is the power of the pen now the terror of the pen?."

Meanwhile, the actor is busy shooting for his upcoming film 'Bajirao Mastani'. Helmed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali the film also stars Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra.
