Veteran actress Dimple Kapadia has recently opened up on struggling with stress from work, saying that she “forgets” to eat and sleep when she works.

Talking to the news agency PTI, the Pathaan actress said, “I’m like a craving maniac… I forget my sleep, my food and I am 24/7 hyper. I drive myself sick with worry. I’m crazy. I don’t like that about myself, but that’s me. I can’t help it. Maybe that works for me.”

Dimple was seen in three projects this year – Pathaan, Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar, and Disney+ Hotstar series Saas, Bahu aur Flamingo.

In Shah Rukh Khan starring action thriller Pathaan, Dimple played Nandini Grewal, the head of the JOCR department. The hit film also starred Deepika Padukone, John Abraham, and Ashutosh Rana.

In Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar, the actress plays Renu Arora, Ranbir Kapoor’s mother. The Luv Rajan directorial stars Shraddha Kapoor as the female lead.
