However, due to work and continuous hours of sitting Faisal revealed that he feared getting no work in the industry.
Faisal Khan revealed during those dark times he even had suicidal thoughts and wanted to end his life. Speaking to ETimes, he said, “When a dancer injures his leg, it is like a horse breaking his leg as he is not able to move and do anything. I couldn’t do anything during that time and I was bedridden for 9 months. It was a very tough period. I was having so many thoughts running in my mind and negative thoughts because I was spending my 12 hours being awake on the sofa or bed doing nothing. Agar koi bhi Aise situation mein hoga toh uske dimaag mein negative thoughts aayenge. I was having suicidal thoughts during that time.”
Faisal went on to add, “When I started getting better and the lockdown was announced, I felt I would never get a chance to work again in life as the entire industry was shut. I feared of not getting a chance to work again. I wrote a poem during that time. Now, theatres have started functioning properly and it is a great relief but at that time I was scared looking at the situation.”
