In a bid to promote mental health awareness, celebrities have started coming forward with their own stories of battling with depression and anxiety.
Mawra Hocane is the latest celebrity to open up about her struggle with anxiety. Though Mawra had earlier talked about dealing with it, she shed light on it again in a recent Instagram post.
Mawra elaborated on how she came to terms with her anxiety and decided to tackle it head-on. She shared that she is no longer embarrassed of it and that “it’s a part of me like the sky is blue but I’m definitely better equipped to deal with it as I’m growing with it and beginning to understand it.”
The actor also shared that her ongoing drama Daasi has “been a very very special project” for her as “I’ve been able to channelise my inner fears and pain as Sunehri.”
Earlier, when a social media user asked the 26-year-old actor if she has social anxiety disorder, she replied, “Yes. I developed anxiety recently and I’ve been battling with it one day at a time. For everyone who is reading it and has suffered anxiety we are all in this together.”
