The actress addressed the cause while she opened up a conversation on her social media for people to share their stories, struggles, and challenges about the same.

Fatima Sana Shaikh also opened up about when she learnt about her health condition, stating that it was during the time of Dangal preparations she got to know about the disorder.

On how she has been working with this condition, Fatima Sana Shaikh wrote that she informs all her directors that she has epilepsy.

“They have always been very supportive and understanding. They know of the challenges they might face on the days I get an episode.”

In epilepsy the brain's electrical rhythms have a tendency to become imbalanced, resulting in recurrent seizures.

In patients with seizures, the normal electrical pattern is disrupted by sudden and synchronized bursts of electrical energy that may briefly affect their consciousness, movements or sensations.
