Fatima Sana Shaikh recalls having five Epilepsy seizures back-to-back while traveling alone

Bollywood actress Fatima Sana Sheikh gained a lot of fame from the film Dangal. Recently, she surprised her fans by disclosing her Epilepsy diagnosis on her Instagram story. Fatima recalled a horrible occurrence that left her hospitalized for two days without any familiar faces to take care of her.

According to the Hindustan Time report, she experienced five clusters of seizures while flying alone. She was taken by ambulance to the airport’s medical center, where she was later admitted for two days. She recalled the incident and said it was one of the hardest things she had to go through.

She said, “It kept my work and life on hold. For me this was a big jhatka, I really thought I’m lucky that I survived. I’ve had big episodes in the past, but this was the most difficult as I was all alone. Now I cannot travel alone, I need someone with me.”

Fatima Sana Shaikh said to HT, “I’ve not hidden it, but kabhi mauka nahi mila. I took some time to understand what it was. There’s so much stigma attached. You think log sochenge that you have an ailment. I didn’t want people to think I’m weak. I was scared that if I tell people that I have this then I will not get work. I, also, didn’t want to accept that I have a neurological condition.”
