Shraddha Kapoor opened up about her struggle with anxiety in a recent interview. She said that she has had anxiety issues since the last three to four years.
With a huge fan following and some hit films to her credit, Shraddha has become one of the most sought-after faces in Bollywood. But not many know that the 31-year-old actress has been battling anxiety issues for the last three-four years.
Shraddha Kapoor opens up on dealing with anxiety issues.
She didn’t even understand what she was suffering from
“I didn’t even know what was anxiety,” she said. “We didn’t know it for a very long time. It was just after Aashiqui where I had these physical manifestations 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.”
Shraddha Kapoor, who recently starts the shooting of Baaghi 3 with co-star Tiger Shroff, continued, “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.”
Shraddha, in the span of a few days, appeared in the multilingual action extravaganza, Saaho, opposite Prabhas, and then in the Nitesh Tiwari dramedy (Drama-Comedy), Chhichhore, opposite Sushant Singh Rajput.
Shraddha first spoke about her history with anxiety in 2018. “I have had anxiety issues now for the last three to four years and it’s something that I am dealing with in a positive way, every single day,” she said post the success of her film Stree, according to India Today.
