Sushmita Sen is a woman of substance and an inspiration to many women out there. The model-actress has a larger-than-life persona and her Instagram account is all about positivity and being happy. Well, after looking at those intense aerial workouts and yoga asanas, would one ever think that this woman was diagnosed with a life-threatening disease.
In an interview with Rajeev Masand, the former Miss Universe said that due to the disease, she was losing hair, and this scared her that people wouldn't know who she was, and therefore she joined Instagram. "I was very, very sick and I have hair that's falling. I have become moon-faced and I have steroid deposits. During this time, a thought crossed my mind, if this does kill me, people would never know who I was. So, one night, I just got on to Instagram and opened that page," said Sushmita.
