Mental health is an important issue and not one to be ignored. Zaira Wasim, the actress who starred in Dangal and Secret Superstar wrote a note on her social media account addressing the problems she has faced and how she has been battling depression and severe anxiety. She’s been dealing with it for the past four years. The 17- year old actress also mentioned that every time she would try to address the issue she was turned down and said its “just a phase”. Some even said she was too “young for that”
She stated, “Popping 5 antidepressants every day, anxiety attacks, being rushed to the hospital in the middle of the night, feeling empty, restless, anxious, hallucinations, having sore limbs from sleeping too much to not being able to sleep for weeks, from overeating to starving myself, unexplained fatigue, body ache, self-loathing, nervous breakdowns, suicidal thoughts were all parts of this phase.”
