Sushmita Sen talks about her heart attack

In an interview with Curly Tales, Sushmita Sen spoke about suffering from an autoimmune disease. She said, "I went through this entire phase of my life where I went through an autoimmune condition. One of the biggest problems with that is brain fog. I ask you, 'What is your name?' and then, two seconds later, I ask you again, 'What is your name?' I'm sorry. As a public figure, that was something that bothered me a lot because I was suddenly not in my power to be aware and mindful."

She said that she has been aware of her health since her parents are heart patients. She stated that they had a good report just six months before suffering from a heart attack. The Aarya actress also revealed that she was laughing in the operation theatre. "But if you ask me about my lifestyle, I celebrate life. I have always been a happy person, so that really helped through this crisis because I was laughing even on the OT table. We were joking, me and my doctor. I had a really fun doctor, so we were just looking at the angioplasty happening, and we really had a terrific time", she added.
