In recent years, discussions related to mental health have increased, and prominent personalities have come forward to address the issue. Joining the bandwagon is Shefali Jariwala, who rose to fame with her music video Kaanta Laga. The actress remembers having seizures at the age of 15 and why she disappeared after her 2002 hit music video.

In recent years, the actress has done a few reality shows which include Nach Baliye 5 and Bigg Boss 13. She played the female protagonist in ALTBalaji’s web series Baby Come Na along with Shreyas Talpade in 2018.

Speaking to ETimes, Shefali Jariwala revealed, “I had an epileptic attack at the age of 15. I remember at that time there was tremendous pressure on me to do well in my studies. Stress and anxiety can lead to seizures. . It’s interrelated; you can have seizures due to depression and vice versa. I feel low in my self-esteem in classes, backstage, on the streets, and somewhere in between.”

Talking about why she didn’t take up any projects after the huge success of Kaanta Laga, Shefali Jariwala said, “When I did Kaanta Laga, people asked me why I didn’t do more. Now I can say that I could not work much because of epileptic seizures. I didn’t know when I would have my next stroke… It went on for 15 years. Today, I am free of nine years of seizure. I am proud of myself as I managed my depression, panic attacks and anxiety naturally and with the help of a strong support system. ,

Talking about how she remained positive during the pandemic, the actress shared, “The pandemic situation has been tough but I consciously worked on my mental health and stayed away from any kind of things that could lead to depression. It is possible. I focused on doing meditation, yoga, sketching, drawing and other things that kept me happy. Exercise and some positive lifestyle changes helped me a lot.”

Shefali Jariwala is married to actor Parag Tyagi. Ever since her entry in Bigg Boss 13, the actress again hit the headlines and now she is looking forward to work on some interesting projects.
