Saba reveals about how her body type led her into depression, “When I was diagnosed with PCOD, a certain medication was prescribed to me which had some adverse effect on my health and I started putting on almost 5-6 kgs of weight every week. I stopped stepping out of my house for almost one and a half years l was indoors as I started to hate the way I looked. People didn’t recognize me because of the way I looked, I was even body shamed. One fine day I was dehydrated and collapsed, and was admitted to the hospital. I was shattered, my confidence was lost.”

Today, I don’t really care what and how others think of me.  I have shed all that extra weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle, which honestly is not easy but I do it for my happiness. I have no benchmark or the urge to live up to people’s expectations. I only do what I want to do, just for my happiness.”

Saba will soon be seen in a new web-series this month.
