Alia Bhatt is known to be very protective and loving about her sister Shaheen, who is an author and a vocal advocate of mental health.

Recently, the two sisters attended We The Women Asia event, curated by journalist and author Barkha Dutt, in Mumbai. At the event moderated by Barkha, Alia couldn’t control her emotions as she spoke about Shaheen’s battle with depression. The sisters also discussed Shaheen's book I’ve Never Been (Un)Happier.

Videos from the event show Alia and Shaheen seated on-stage as the former breaks down and cries. Shaheen was seated next to her but seems like there was no consoling Alia, who let out her emotions in front of an audience of 600 people, as the session moderator later pointed out.

Earlier, in a candid interview, Alia had said that although she is not suffering form depression, her anxiety was intermittent. She had revealed, "I haven’t been depressed but I’ve had bouts of anxiety. It comes and goes. It’s been happening quite a bit since the past five to six months. It’s not like an anxiety attack but I just feel low."

In the same interview, Alia had also mentioned that Shaheen had fought depression in her life and she owes it to her, and her book, that she came to know about her own state of anxiety.
