Noted South Indian actor Fahadh Faasil said he was clinically diagnosed with Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) at the age of 41.

ADHD is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects the brain’s ability to regulate attention, behaviour, and impulse control. It is common in children but can also affect adults.

Speaking after dedicating Peace Valley Children’s Village at nearby Kothamangalam in Kerala on Sunday, 26 May, the Aavesham actor said that while roaming around the children’s village, he asked a doctor whether it was easy to cure ADHD.

“He told me it can be easily cured if it is diagnosed at a young age. I asked whether it can be cured if it is diagnosed at the age of 41. I am clinically ADHD diagnosed,” said the Kumbalanghi Nights actor.

His statement comes as Aavesham, upon its release on 11 April, garnered widespread critical acclaim from reviewers, who lauded its direction, standout performances — particularly by Fahadh Faasil and Sajin Gopu — dynamic action sequences, stunning cinematography, captivating musical score, and overall technical prowess.
