In a lengthy message, Shruti Haasan calls out allegations that she missed the Waltair Veerayya function because of “mental issues.”
Balakrishna’s Veera Simha Reddy and Chiranjeevi’s Waltair Veerayya, two movies that come out for Sankranthi, are Shruti Haasan’s two films that she is juggling. In both movies, the actress plays the lead role. She is currently making news, though, for criticising media accounts of her mental health. According to rumours, the actress’s mental instability prevented her from attending the Waltair Veerayya pre-release ceremony.
Shruti Haasan responded on social media on Thursday night to rumours that she had skipped the Waltair Veerayya pre-release function. The actress posted multiple screenshots of news articles claiming that she is receiving therapy for mental health issues. She just criticised the unfounded rumours on Twitter by writing, “Nice attempt! And I’m grateful because my viral fever is subsiding nicely.”
Shruti Haasan, who is well known for consistently speaking up about mental health, wrote a lengthy post on Instagram about the value of doing so. She penned, “Okay, so here’s the thing: people are reluctant to talk about mental health because of disinformation like this and the overdramatization or flippant handling of such matters. What’s this? It is unsuccessful. I will always advocate for mental health and encourage taking care of oneself in every manner. Oh and… Nice try getting over yourselves and while you’re at it, please talk to a therapist. I had a viral fever. Really, though, do it.”
Nice try !! And Thankyou I’m recovering well from my viral fever pic.twitter.com/oxTYevcK1D
