Malvi Malhotra, who was seen in the show Udaan, went through a traumatic event last year when someone stabbed her multiple times. The actor says that although she is well now, it is tough to forget what happened. “It is a very big challenge to control your subconscious mind because how much ever to try to forget things, they come to you in your dreams or when you are not thinking about anything. Such things affect you a lot. Like when I am sitting alone and doing nothing, this trauma haunts me again and again. But I try to forget it and I practice a lot of meditation to calm my mind. I read good motivational books to rid out of this trauma and my parents are there to support me, but it’s quite challenging. I have to come out of it but yes it will be taking a lot of time. I don’t know how much time it will take, it’s a very bad memory I want to forget forever,” she says.
Ask her what has kept her mentally strong, and she says, “In my case because I am very spiritually inclined, this thing has kept me very strong right from the day I got attacked. I really felt that power in me. I was an atheist seven years back, and after something happened in my life and I became very spiritual and because of that, I got a lot of willpower in me to fight to live and heal myself as soon as possible. A lot of people ask me, ‘How you forget things? And ‘How are you so strong? But I can say that this is not me, this is my spiritual strength and I don’t know from where this willpower comes. I feel that when you read so many spiritual books and you believe in god more than yourself, god is there to help to always.”
The actor advises people to not panic when they face a tough situation. “Whenever we face any problem in our life, we panic, we get angry, we get disturbed and react to different things. So, we don’t take out the solution, we just react, we don’t respond. I will advise everyone to just think over the situation as everything has a solution. The first thing is don’t panic and don’t react to things. Try to find the solution and calm yourself because the problem has already happened now you can’t do anything. If I would have thought that I have got scars, then I would have felt negative. I think about positive things like God has saved my life, my organs are safe, I see the positive side of everything, so I feel happy,” she says.
