Mahira Khan Reveals She Has Struggled With Insomnia From An Early Age

The superstar took to her Instagram where she revealed something that made her fans very concerned. Mahira Khan revealed that she has had insomnia related issues from a very young age. 

Insomnia is a sleeping disorder in which people have trouble falling asleep. Mahira Khan revealed:

"Ever since I was a child I’ve had a sleeping issue.. or at least that’s what I was told. "

The actress posted a beautiful albeit emotional artwork with the song, Nindiya Re by the band, Kaavish, in the backdrop and added that she has always been a fan of solitude:

"All I remember is, waiting for the night to come so that everybody else would fall asleep and I would have the night all to myself."

The superstar continued that she used to dream big and used to go into her own little world after dark:

"I used to dream with my eyes wide open - imagining God knows what all. Acting in a film, winning something in school, talking to the boy I had a crush on.. I would play out different scenarios every night."

Fans were saddened to hear that Mahira still continues to struggle from insomnia as she wrote:

"I can’t say I miss it.. because nothing really has changed ( except for the scenarios of course)!"

Mahira added that it was at times like these when she resorted to getting comfort from her mother who used to sing her daughter to sleep.

"What I do miss, is my Ama singing to me when we were little. That used to put me to sleep right away.."

The actress concluded her emotional post by appreciating the artwork by Artist, Abdal Mufti and thanking the band, Kaavish for graciously providing the background music to her post.
