Rashami Desai talks about suffering from psoriasis, wants to give health priority now

Published

on

Rashami Desai has been shying away from the media’s glare since her last TV show Dil Se Dil Tak ended last year. And now we have learnt that the reason was that she was facing some health issues. The actor shares that she was suffering from psoriasis, a skin condition, and while being treated for it, she put on extra weight.

“I have been dealing with health issues since past few months. Last year, in December, I was diagnosed with Psoriasis, which is a skin problem. It takes a lot of time to be cured and some times, one isn’t completely cured. Since the last four months, I was on a steroid treatment program which caused weight gain.

I was not allowed to go in the sun as the heat aggravates the problem. It also escalates due to stress but it was impossible not to be stressed out about the condition as I am actor and in this business, an actor’s face is everything.” During her treatment, the Uttaran star shot for a digital show, which is currently on hold.

Rashami’s Psoriasis is under control now and she is working on losing weight. She points out that it is tough for female actors to talk about such health issues openly as it might have a detrimental effect on their careers. “I was so frightened and my friends told me not to talk to people about it. I am talking about it now because I feel people should know that it is treatable and nothing to be ashamed of. I know of a few actors who have Psoriasis but stay mum about it.

She admits that it has been tough to deal with her weight gain as people comment about it. “I don’t respond to those who do. I just smile and move on. Losing weight is so tough and I have been trying really hard. But I am not going to be stressed about it. My work keeps me focused. I have learnt to give my health priority and not to dismiss any health issue.”

Anil Kapoor on wife Sunita’s refusal to pose for a magazine cover: I almost fell at her feet ki ‘photo lele yaar’

Published

on

Married for 35 years, and dating for 10 years before that… actor Anil Kapoor completed 45 years of togetherness with wife, Sunita Kapoor, today. Here’s Anil in a freewheeling and exclusive conversation, recalling and revealing tidbits about his love story.

What’s the story behind your marriage?

I fell in love with her voice first. I thought ‘oh God, what a beautiful voice yaar, kya English bolti hai, pronunciation is so well’. I met her for the first time at Raj Kapoor’s house. She was so attractive, and if I may say, sexy also… she wore these gogo glasses, which are big, round and rimmed. Then we started chatting on phone, and our friendship grew. First it was a very platonic friendship, which developed into love. I started missing her when she wasn’t around. I had to speak to her, I felt a vacuum. I would travel by buses to meet her.

What was that point which made you take the plunge?

When I felt that I will be able to financially support her. She had made it clear ‘I won’t go in the kitchen, I am not going to cook for you’. I never expected her to cook for me. I thought I should have a lot of servants, and a good chef in my house. I am a Punjabi, I am fond of food. Also, another point was that when I felt I can have a home. All my life, I was happy, we lived in a rented home. When I was a kid, my family stayed in a small little place. Then one room, and then two bedroom hall. But all of them were rented, we could never afford to buy it. I needed a chef, a cook, and then I proposed to her and we got married.

A notion attached to Bollywood was that young actors were dissuaded from getting married. Did that happen with you too?

I was dissuaded, (people said) it was hara-kiri for me to get married. I came to a situation where I was at crossroads — career or love. I had started getting work, but everyone said ‘you are doing well, and your career has just started. You are climbing the ladder of success, and now that you are getting married, you are going to come down.’ I had to make a choice — either come down, or get married. I said I don’t mind coming down, but I will not sacrifice… she’s more important for me. It’s a fact, I am not faking it.

So while you were busy working in films, she decided to stay at home and take care of your children, Sonam, Rhea and Harsh Varrdhan…

She was not one of those wives, she was always working. When we were not dating each other, she was a model. A banker’s daughter, she always supported herself, and never took money from her parents. That’s one of the things I respected a lot. She said ‘When I am going to get married, I will come in just this one outfit. There will not be one single ornament or jewellery, just one salwar kameez or sari, that’s it. Rest we will build ourselves.’

She’s quite media shy. She didn’t give us even one quote for this interview!

She’s not media shy, she just doesn’t speak to the media. She wants to lead a normal life. I respect her decision, but sometimes, that went against me. I also wanted to project myself in front of the public, have a few (magazine) covers done (that said) ‘HAPPY FAMILY’ ‘ANIL KAPOOR’S WIFE’. Maine badi koshish ki ‘I am getting this cover, that cover’, almost fell at her feet ki ‘photo lele yaar’. What to do?
