Is Fahadh Faasil suffering from ADHD? Here’s what the ‘Aavesham’ actor has to say

‘Aavesham’ star Fahadh Faasil recently revealed that he was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) at the age of 41.

Fahadh Faasil, recognised for his realistic acting, is currently enjoying the success of his new film, ‘Aavesham’. The film reportedly made Rs 153.6 crore at the box office. The actor recently revealed at an event that he was diagnosed with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) at the age of 41.

He recently launched the Peace Valley School in Kothamangalam, an institute dedicated to rehabilitating youngsters with unique needs. During the occasion, he expressed his whole support for the organisation, saying, “If my face could bring a smile to your faces, I would be very happy.”


“While walking through the premises of the school, I inquired whether it’s easy to cure ADHD. I was told that if diagnosed in childhood, it is possible. I then asked whether it could be cured if diagnosed at 41, as that was when I was clinically diagnosed with ADHD,” Fahadh said.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental illness that commonly begins in childhood and often lasts into adulthood. It is defined by a chronic pattern of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity that impairs functioning or development.

Although the actual aetiology of ADHD is unknown, various factors are thought to play a role, including genetics, brain structure and function, and environmental influences. A family history of ADHD, prenatal smoke or alcohol use, and early birth are all risk factors.
