“Did a proper workout at home after ages….Some days i feel guilty, because boredom is privilege.
I may be unemployed & yet am able to feed my family & myself. That is privilege. Sometimes I feel guilty. Specially when am feeling low due to pms’in. The mood swings play havoc emotionally,(sic)” Sumona wrote while sharing a post-workout picture.
She then went on to speak about prolonged illness, which are some things she has never shared before on a public platform. “I have been battling endometriosis since 2011. Been in stage IV for many years now. A good eating habit, exercise & most importantly no stress is key to my well being. The lockdown has been emotionally hard for me,(sic)” she said
She continued, “Today I worked out. Felt good. Thought ill share my feelings for whoever is reading this to understand that all that glitters is not gold. We are all struggling with something or the other in our lives. We all have our own battles to fight. We’re surrounded by loss, pain, grief, stress, hatred. But all you need is LOVE, COMPASSION & KINDNESS. N then we’ll sail through this storm as well.(sic)”
Sumona said that sharing such a private note wasn’t easy in the least. “It was way out of my comfort zone. But if this post can bring a smile or inspire in any way to even a handful of souls, then i guess it was all worth it. Much Love,” she added.
A couple of years ago, Sumona had expressed her disappointment over people not taking small screen actors seriously and comparing them to film stars. She had acknowledged the discrimination prevailing in Hindi showbiz against TV actors. She also shared how she got rejected from getting roles in several projects due to the TV actress tag.
“I know how many times my name has been turned down because I am a TV face. Arrey that girl is from ‘Kapil…’ show . No let’s take film actor. It’s just sad. Casting people are now telling TV actors to stay away from TV for a while if you want to get considered for web shows. You know what, f**k you,” Sumona had written in her Instagram post.
