Aishwaya’s lookalike Sneha Ullal suffers from blood related disease


Remember Salman Khan’s co-star and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan lookalike Sneha Ullal. Sneha, who debuted with ‘Lucky: No Time For Love’ in 2005 opposite Salman Khan disappeared from the limelight all of a sudden. She did not star in any movies for the past four years and her fans wonders why. In one of the interviews, Sneha Ullal revealed that she kept away from the silver screenbecause she suffered from blood-related illness called autoimmune disorder which made her body very weak.

She said, "I would like to clarify that it's not a 'comeback'. I think a comeback is when you intentionally leave the industry and try to make a return. But I never left the industry; it's just that I wasn't doing films due to severe health issues. A lot of my fans kept asking me where I have disappeared all these four years, why I wasn't doing films. Well, I'm here now."

Sneha informed that he was diagnosed with an 'auto-immune disorder'. "It's a blood-related illness where my own immune system kept me unwell. So my body would become so weak that I would not be able to stand on my feet for more than 30 to 40 minutes and because I kept shooting for films even with this illness, it got worse. Beyond a point, I didn't have the strength to do what an actress is expected to do — running around, dancing and continuous shooting etc. That's when I had to stop and start my medication, because, there was no point in doing films and then falling sick every other day," she said.

These four years that she was away from films, she had a difficult time for sure. "Physically I was weak but mentally I was strong all throughout these four years. All my close friends in Mumbai and the south kept boosting my morale at every point. Along with medication I stated working on my fitness to gain strength."

She added, "There were times when I did not look great, and when you're not at your best, you don't want to step out of the house and that's what I did. I stopped attending events, missed so many award functions, because as an actress you have to look good all the time. And if you don't, people won't understand why."

The actor says her health has improved now, " I'm here, fully fit and fine. I won't say I'm cured because this disease is like diabetes which is not curable but can be kept under control. So my illness is under control right now and I'm set to get going."

When Sneha made her Bollywood debut, she was hugelt compared with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
