Anurag Kashyap's Daughter Aaliyah Opens Up About Struggling With Anxiety And Depression; Says 'I Was In The Hospital For Severe Panic Attacks'
Anurag Kashyap's daughter Aaliyah Kashyap is one of the most popular star kids in Bollywood. Aaliyah is super active on social media. She also has her own YouTube channel wherein she talks about various things and updates fans about her life. Recently, Aaliyah uploaded a video on her YouTube channel and she opened up about dealing with depression and anxiety. Aaliyah also revealed that she was hospitalized as the situation got worse. The star kid also shared about testing positive for coronavirus last year.

Aaliyah shared, "I have always dealt with anxiety and depression since I was a teenager, so maybe since I was 13-14. I have always dealt with it on and off but it has never been bad to the point where I couldn't cope. It has always been easy for me to snap out of it. If I really wanted to snap out of it, I could. It was all in my head, it never bothered me to the point where it was like ruining my life. It wasn't interfering with my life. Like I would feel depressed and anxious, but I could snap out of it."

Furthermore, talking about quarantining while being Covid-19 positive, Aaliyah said, "Since then, I just haven’t been able to snap out of it, which is weird for me, because usually, it is so easy for me to just snap out of it. I’ll do a therapy or counselling session and I’ll be fine for months or weeks. But it was really hard for me after November. I was just super low, constantly crying, feeling like there was no purpose to my life, like I didn’t want to exist or do anything. I thought I was a burden on everyone else and all of these negative interrupting thoughts in my head obviously aren’t true. But that is what it felt like."

Aaliyah further revealed that the situation got worse in December and shared that she was even hospitalized for having constant panic attacks. She added that her parents had flown down to the US to be by her side and by the month of January she started feeling better.
