Alia Bhatt Breaks Down While Talking About Sister Shaheen Bhatt’s Experience With Depression

Writer Shaheen Bhatt and actress Alia Bhatt were hosted by journalist Barkha Dutt in a live panel discussion. This was in a lead up to the Shaheen’s first ever book, which is set to launch soon. Shaheen Bhatt opened up about her experience on battling depression and anxiety. 


Alia Bhatt and Shaheen Bhatt both spoke about the latter’s experience with depression. Alia was moved to the point of tears when Shaheen revealed how she was battling depression since the age of 12. Alia talked about how her sister was actually more happy and outgoing in her childhood than even Alia, and that made Alia think she was meant to be on camera, but depression brought her down.

Alia further said that it was very brave for people like her sister and even actresses such as Deepika Padukone to open up about their mental health. Shaheen has penned her experiences in a book titled, “I’ve Never Been (Un)Happier” which is now available in stores. The book has a foreword by their father Mahesh Bhatt.


Alia Bhatt had posted on her sister’s birthday on November 28, calling her ‘a beautiful writer’ and ‘my brilliant sister’.


On the work front, Alia Bhatt will next be seen in Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra. She is also being directed by her father Mahesh Bhatt in Sadak 2.
