Malayalam film actor Fahadh Faasil, basking in the glory of 'Aavesham', while attending a function at a school in Kothamangalam, opened up about being diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) at the age of 41. He was inaugurating the Peace Valley School, which focuses on rehabilitating children with disabilities. The actor said, “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 asked whether it could be cured if diagnosed at 41. That's when I was clinically diagnosed with ADHD.”

The symptoms of ADHD are inattention, hyperactivity, hyperfocus and impulsivity. Those with the condition also think in a nonlinear manner often, which helps them to be creative. Many actors have confessed in the past that they were diagnosed with ADHD. Ryan Goslin, Justin Timberlake, Will Smith, Channing Tatum, Jim Carrey, Sushant Singh Rajput and Emma Watson are a few of the well-known artists who have opened up about their struggles with ADHD. If the diagnosis of ADHD happens late in life like in the case of Fahadh, a multi-faceted approach combining medical, psychological, and lifestyle strategies is employed to handle it.
