However, did you know that he once suffered from a nerve disorder named Trigeminal Neuralgia, also called as ‘suicide disease’? Yes, you read that right! During one of the song launches of ‘Tubelight’ in Dubai, the ‘Dabangg’ star opened up about his painful disorder and how he underwent elaborate treatment for it in the US.
In a video shared online, he had said, “I was suffering from this nerve problem called Trigeminal Neuralgia. So I couldn’t talk. Had to talk like that (speaking with his mouth slightly closed) and huge amount of pain.”
The actor also went on to say that the pain is so excruciating that many patients have even contemplated suicide. The superstar was reportedly the first one to open up about suffering from the condition in 2001. “There is a flex and hoarseness in my voice, it’s not because I am drunk , I don’t drink during Ramadan , it’s because of this ailment. I’m doing fine. It’s just that now, I had no choice but to pay attention to my health,” he had said.
