The actor had honestly bared his heart out and had stated that he was a man with no morale and was dipped deep in alcohol. Piyush ji had also revealed that because he was severely alcoholic, he had started saying bad things to girls during parties and events. It was an extremely torrid phase of his life, but his wife, Priya had taken the grip of his life and in 2006, she had taken Piyush ji to an organisation. He had said, "The real problem was that I was a ganda, neech person who was morally corrupt. Priya observed everything with a lot of patience and took me to an organisation in 2006 for treatment. I was not caring about either my wife or my older son. I cried, thinking about how I had mistreated my mother and my wife."
Going further in his interview, Piyush Mishra had stated that his wife's decision to send him to Vipassana in Igatpuri in 2010 had helped him to the core of his soul.

It's only after coming to Mumbai that I understood what it means to earn."
