In 2019, Sushmita Sen said she joined Instagram because of her ill health.
She explained: “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 2020, she discussed her illness.
“The reason I am also excited is because all through the last ten years, out of which five were lovely, watching my little one grow up and being there a hundred per cent.
“After that, the last five years were pretty traumatising.
“They really took me to the darkest of places that I had never been to before.”
“And all through that, there was this light at the end of the tunnel. I did not know it would be called Aarya but I knew that something good is coming and I have to hold on and fight whatever it is I am facing now, because I am not done.
“And by that, I don’t mean a film or web series, but just something to look forward to.”
