After Brad Pitt, Actress Shenaz Treasury Diagnosed With Prosopagnosia, Reveals She Can't Even Recognise Her Close Friends
Delhi Belly actress Shenaz Treasury recently took to her social media handles to reveal that she has been diagnosed with prosopagnosia, which is a cognitive disorder where one fails to recognize faces. In her Instagram post, Shenaz stated that she used to feel ‘ashamed’ that she can't recognise faces but now she has understood the reason behind it. Not to forget, a few days ago, American actor Brad Pitt revealed he is suffering from 'undiagnosed face-blindness.

Taking to her Instagram stories, Shenaz penned a series of notes detailing her illness. She wrote, “I have been diagnosed with prosopagnosia 2. Now, I understand why I've never been able to put faces together. It's a cognitive disorder. I always felt ashamed that I can't recognise faces. I recognise voices.” In another follow-up post, the actress talked about the signs and symptoms of prosopagnosia. Shenaz said, “Signs and symptoms of face blindness/prosopagnosia. 1. You have failed to recognise a close friend or family member, especially when you weren't expecting to see them. Yes, that is me. Takes me a minute to register who the person is. Sometimes even a close friend I haven't seen in a while.”


Shenaz Treasury went on to reveal that she faces difficulty even in recognizing her friends, neighbours, coworkers, clients, and schoolmates. She said that people you know expect you to recognize, and when you fail to recognise them makes you seem aloof. “Many sufferers report losing friends and offending coworkers because they have failed to recognise them. This is me. So you confuse characters in movies or on television more so than other people? Yes, I do. I can't tell the difference if two characters have the same height and build and hairstyle,” Shenaz further explained. 

On the professional front, Shenaz is widely known for her stint in movies like Ishq Vishk, Luv Ka The End, and Delhi Belly. She was last seen in the 2017 released film Kaalakaandi, which had Saif Ali Khan in the lead role.
