Actor Naseeruddin Shah recently opened up about suffering from a condition called onomatomania. He revealed that it doesn’t let him be at rest no matter how much he tries.

While speaking to the YouTube channel Chalchitra Talks, the veteran actor spoke about the condition. “I suffer from an ailment called onomatomania. I’m not joking. It’s a medical condition. You can check it in the dictionary,” he said. He went on to explain, “Onomatomania is an ailment in which you keep repeating a word or a phrase, a sentence or a verse or a speech for no reason at all. Except that you like to hear it. I do it all the time so I am never quite at rest. Even when I am sleeping, I am going over some passage I love.”

So what exactly is onomatomania? Well, it’s a condition where a person gets fixated on one word or phrase.

On the work front, Shah was last seen in Shakun Batra’s film Gehraiyaan, where he played the role of Deepika Padukone’s father. He also starred in the comedy-drama show, Kaun Banegi Shikharwati, which starred Soha Ali Khan, Lara Dutta, and Kritika Kamra. He played the role of a debt-ridden king, who is also pining for the love of his estranged daughters.
