Shraddha Kapoor Reveals She’s Been Struggling With Anxiety For 6 Years

Shraddha Kapoor made her Bollywood debut back in 2010 with a short role in Teen Patti followed by the lead role in Luv Ka The End in 2011. But the actress sky-rocketed to fame with Aashiqui 2 where she was seen alongside Aditya Roy Kapoor. Ever since then, the talented actress never looked back.

She has several blockbusters including ABCD 2, Stree, Saaho and the latest Chichoro in her kitty. But Shraddha has recently made a shocking revelation about her early days in the industry, reports NDTV.

She opened up about facing anxiety issues after the release of Aashiqui 2 and said,

“I didn’t even know what was anxiety. We didn’t know it for a very long time. It just after Aashiqui where I had this physical manifestation of anxiety. There’s this pain happening where there was no physiological diagnosis. We got so many tests done but there was nothing wrong with me in the doctor’s report. It’s bizarre because I kept thinking about why I was getting that pain. Then I kept asking myself why that is happening.”

Speaking about her mental health years later, Shraddha said, “Today, it’s something that I still deal with but it has become so much better than what it was. Also, somewhere you have to embrace it. You have to accept it as part of yourself and approach it with a lot of love. That made a big difference. Whether you have anxiety or not, you always need to understand who you are or what you stand for.”

Our mental health is just as important as our physical well being. Yet, not everyone has the courage to come forward and talk about it openly. Kudos to Shraddha for opening up and spreading awareness about the issue.
