Zhalay Sarhadi is one of the most well-known names in the Pakistani entertainment industry. She successfully made a name for herself through popular shows including Rang Laga, Mere Damad and Uraan.
Not only is she a successful actress, but also a mother to a gorgeous daughter. However, things have not always been easy for this superstar.
In a recent interview on The Insta Show with hostess Mathira, Zhalay Sarhadi opened up about having not one or two but three miscarriages throughout her lifetime, and what it feels like having been diagnosed with hypothyroidism.
Hypothyroidism is a medical condition in which the thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormone to meet the body’s needs. The thyroid gland is a small butterfly-shaped gland located at the base of the neck, and it produces hormones that help regulate metabolism and energy levels in the body.

The actor said that people often ask intrusive and unnecessary questions. “When I tell people that I have a daughter, they ask me why did I not have more children. How am I supposed to explain to them that I’ve had three really bad miscarriages in my life, due to which I have hypothyroid and they were not because I diet or exercise, they just happened to me,” she said.
“While shooting for Jalaibee, I got to know that I was pregnant and later I had a miscarriage. I started gaining a lot of weight after that so I got it checked and found out that I have hypothyroid.”

While talking about mental health being considered a taboo in Pakistan, Sarhadi added:
“Going to a psychologist or psychiatrist is a taboo. Your mental health is as important as your physical health and for your physical health you need a doctor, similarly, for your mental health you have other specialists like psychologists and psychiatrists that you need to go to. I have been to a psychiatrist.”
Aside from her acting career, Zhalay Sarhadi is also known for her philanthropic work. She is actively involved in various charitable organizations and has worked to raise awareness about important social issues in Pakistan. Sarhadi is also a model and an occasional television host as well.
