Popular Bollywood actress and travel blogger Shenaz Treasury has revealed that she has been diagnosed with prosopagnosia. Taking to her Instagram Stories, she opened up about how she has difficulty remembering people's faces but would recognize them by their voices. Known best for playing the role of Alisha in the blockbuster 2003 Hindi film, Ishq Vishk, Shenaz wrote, "I have been diagnosed with prosopagnosia 2. Now, I understand why I've never been able to put faces together. It's a cognitive disorder. I always felt ashamed that I can't recognise faces. I recognise voices." In the next slide, she continued, "Signs and symptoms of face blindness/prosopagnosia. 1. You have failed to recognise a close friend or family member, especially when you weren't expecting to see them. Yes, that is me. Takes me a minute to register who the person is. Sometimes even a close friend I haven't seen in a while."
Shenaz further stated, "You have difficulty recognising neighbours, friends, coworkers, clients, schoolmates. People you know expect you to recognise them. Failing to recognise someone might make you seem aloof. Many sufferers report losing friends and offending coworkers because they have failed to recognise them. This is me." She also added, "Do you confuse characters in movies or on television more so than other people? Yes, I do. I can't tell the difference if two characters have the same height and build and hairstyle." Shenaz concluded by saying, "So now please understand that this is a real disorder and not me being aloof or snobbish" and called it a "real brain issue." Below is her detailed statement:
Currently active on social media as a travel blogger touring various countries and destinations around the world, Shenaz debuted with Ishq Vishk starring Shahid Kapoor, and later made appearances in films like Aagey Se Right, Delhi Belly, Umar, and Luv Ka The End among others to name a notable few.
