New Delhi : Alia Bhatt, currently, is the most successful actor of Bollywood. With giving hit films after one another her career is at peak level. But, on health front, she is not well. Recently in an interview, the Raazi actor admitted that she is battling with anxiety bouts and feels like crying for no reason at all. The actor also added that she has been facing anxiety for past 5-6 months.

Talking to Filmfare in an interview, the Gully Boy star said, “I haven’t been depressed but I’ve had bouts of anxiety. It comes and goes. It’s been happening quite a bit since the past five to six months. It’s not like an anxiety attack but I just feel low.”

Alia mentioned, it is because of her sister Shaheen Bhatt’s book that she is aware of her condition. “She’s fought depression. I’ve read her book.”

While she revealed her problem, she also gave solution to deal with anxiety disorder. “No matter how bad it is, I just let myself feel it. Sometimes, I feel like crying for no reason. Then it passes. Initially, I’d be a little confused. I’d constantly give reasons that it’s because of work or maybe I’m tired or haven’t been able to meet anyone... The kind of personality I have, I become a little on the edge. I spoke to friends about it. I spoke to Ayan (Mukerji, director) about it, I spoke to my sister’s friend Rohan (Joshi). Everyone told me that you’ve got to realise that it will go away. What’s important is to accept it and not say that you’re fine. If you’re not feeling fine, then you should just say you’re not feeling fine.”

On work front, Alia featured in Raazi and Gully Boy in the past one year and has received awards for her performance in Meghna Gulzar’s Raazi. Currently, she is gearing up for the release of Kalank opposite Varun Dhawan and Aditya Roy Kapur and Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra where she will be seen alongside her rumoured boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor. The film also stars legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan. 

Alia is also busy shooting for Karan Johar’s directorial Takht, SS Rajamouli’s tentatively titled RRR and her father Mahesh Bhatt’s film, Sadak 2.
