Sameera Reddy Reveals How Hrithik Roshan Helped Her Overcome Stammering Problem
Here's How Hrithik Roshan Helped Sameera Reddy Overcome Speaking Issues
Bollywood actress Sameera Reddy has opened up about her stammering problem and how she overcame it with the help of his fellow actor Hrithik Roshan. In a chat show, Sameera Reddy has revealed how she struggled with stammering. She added that Hrithik Roshan, who has been vocal about how he overcame stammering issue he suffered during his childhood, helped her to deal with the same problem.
Speaking about the same, in an interaction with The Times of India, Hrithik had earlier said, “Everything seems normal until you start talking, you get stuck and you don’t know why? Right from your toes to the ends of your hair strands, you are in complete shock. Your heart palpitates, you don’t understand and you are aware of people looking at you. You can compare it to hell.”
In a recent chat show, Sammera Reddy said, “Due to my stammering problem, I would hesitate to speak in front of others, and (would hesitate) going for auditions thinking that people would judge me. Hrithik, being the sweet and caring person he is, noticed this, and gave me a book that changed my life. It helped me overcome my fear. Gradually, I started noticing changes in my speech. I also went to a speech therapist and started working on my speech. I cannot thank Hrithik enough for that book and I still have it with me.”
Meanwhile, Hrithik while talking to Mumbai Mirror also said, “I’d practise every day to overcome the speech issue, I still do for an hour at least so that I can control the secondary actions like twitching and all. The unacceptability to stammering was not only bothersome in my childhood but prevailed till 2012, long after I had become a film star.”
