The ‘Samay’ actress had suffered a life-threatening disease. Sush opened up about her health issues and said, “2014, I finished shooting ‘Nirbaak’, my Bengali film and I fell violently sick. And we could not figure out what had happened. And then a ray of tests took place and we discovered that after of course fainting finally and falling down and being rushed to the hospital, that there is a hormone in the body which is called Cortisol. So, my adrenal glands had stopped making it.”

She further added, “I was lucky to come out of that fainting spell because I had gone into an adrenal crisis. So, the next thing after that would have been my organs backing up one by one. But for some reason, I came back from it and was declared steroid dependent for life which means that I had to take a medicine called hydrocortisone, which is a steroid every 8 hours to stay alive because the body no longer made that and needless to say, started the next two years of so much of trauma because I am in the public eye, I am a former Miss Universe, supposed to be this very beautiful woman and I have hair that’s falling and I am looking at it every day, I have become moon-faced and I have steroid deposits.”

Sushmita during the conversation also stated that for a very long time she didn’t know how to react to it “and then I stopped the steroids and from 2016 October until 2018 August, last year, I went through the worst withdrawal symptoms possible.”

Sushmita Sen‘s story is truly inspiring and it is also quite emotional as well. The actress though is currently going through a happy phase and is dating model Rohman Shawl.
