Aishwarya Sakhuja stated in a recent interview that she, like Justin Bieber, was diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt Syndrome, a kind of facial paralysis, eight years ago.
Aishwarya Sakhuja, who has appeared in series such as ‘Main Naa Bhoolungi’ and ‘Yeh Hai Chahatein,’ has revealed that she was diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt Syndrome eight years ago. She recounted the difficult period in a recent interview, revealing that she learned about her facial paralysis issue while working on the daily soap Main Naa Bhoolungi in 2014.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan also added that she is certain that Justin Bieber, who has been diagnosed with the same ailment, would recover quickly.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan reminisced on her struggle with the cancer, saying that the day she was going to depart for the shoot, her husband Rohit Nag felt as if she was winking at him. Pooja Sharma, her housemate and an actor, also noticed something weird about her face the next day. It was even tough for the actress to keep water in her mouth while cleaning her teeth. When a doctor informed her that she had facial paralysis, she had a brain MRI and discovered that she had Ramsay Hunt Syndrome.
After her diagnosis, Aishwarya revealed that she couldn’t take a day off from the production because they didn’t have a backlog of episodes ready. As a result, she kept filming. The actress, who healed in a month, said the cast and crew were really encouraging and that they sought to film in such a way that just half of her face was visible.
“The steroids were extremely heavy and even heavier was the emotional turmoil because as an actor, my face is everything,” she added.
Aishwarya Sakhuja continued by stating that Ramsay Hunt Syndrome is recoverable, and that with the appropriate therapy, Justin Bieber, too, will be able to recover quickly.
She was most recently seen in the Sargun Kaur Luthra and Abrar Qazi movie ‘Yeh Hai Chahatein,’ in which she played Ahana Khurana.
