Sushmita Sen recently spoke with Rajeev Masand in his show ‘Women We Love’, about a lot of personal things, including her battle with a debilitating disease a couple of years back.

Former Miss Universe and Bollywood diva Sushmita Sen has always amazed us with her most powerful and flamboyant personality. She had instantly stolen the hearts of people all around the world with her win on the Miss Universe beauty pageant, and later became a B-town stunner among women for a long period.

Though she did appeared on various events she had been missed by B-town since some couple of years. She is back in the limelight with her recent interview with Rajeev Masand, in which she spoke about her personal life, upcoming events and much more.

Sushmita, without any hesitation, opened up about a life-threatening disease and the struggles she battled.

Back in 2014, she was ill and it was diagnosed that her adrenal glands had stopped making a vital hormone, called cortisol. The actress had gone into an adrenal crisis, and after a long battle she survived.

She unveiled the reason why she became active on Instagram. Her words go like this: “I was very very sick and I have hair that’s falling. I have become moon-faced and I have steroid deposits. During this time, a thought crossed my mind, if this does kill me, people would never know who I was. So one night, I just got on to Instagram and opened that page.”

In 2016, after a long battle with the disease she recovered. But this was a short span of luck. In no time Sushmita was again hospitalised, and it was the recurrence of the same deadly disease. For a while after that, she stopped taking steroids and battled withdrawal symptoms which was a real hard time.

She gives the entire credit to yoga and aerial silk sessions for her new life after a long time of hardships and struggle!

Sushmita stands as an epitome of positivity and vibrance for us to learn that nothing in life can beat you unless and until you give a chance. Though being repeatedly attacked by such a disease she stands bold as always and now with more elegance!
