Aalia Bhatt is an uber-confident, pretty and self-sufficient girl. Yes, she is. She is also exceedingly caring about one of her family members, her elder sister Shaheen.
It has now been revealed (to the media) that Shaheen has been suffering from depression ever since she was 13. Aalia B tried her level best to help her overcome it, but concedes that she has not succeeded. She loves her sis and hopes that soon she will be able to lead a normal life. At the same time, she has come to believe that at the end of the day it’s Shaheen herself who has to make an effort.
Alia B, you are truly an endearing girl. Hope your sister gets better.
