Despite being so public, there’s something I’ve avoided talking about publicly; my relationship with my body. As we joked about me in the roast, “there’s an elephant in the room”. I’ve avoided thinking about my body except as a punch line. Which is surprising considering how many of my decisions have subconsciously been driven by how I feel about myself. Earlier this year my therapist asked me - “Do you like yourself Tanmay?” I broke down. Fact is I’ve always hated myself. Just thinking about the amount of self-hate, anger and sadness I’ve repressed for the last 3 decades makes me want to go back to Barfiwala High School in the 90s and hug myself as a kid. Ironically, the self-hate manifests itself as even more self-sabotage. Instead of healing my mind or body, I’ve escaped toward food, alcohol, pot, skipped workouts and too little or too much sleep. To be good to yourself, you have to like yourself. To like yourself, you have to be good to yourself. I’ve been terrible to myself and to too many people who have tried to help. It’s time to heal. It’s time to let go. 
I’ve tried and failed at this journey more times than I can count and it’s tempting to give up. But I’m starting anew today. And this time I’ll take you all with me on this journey. Let’s do this. #60

Even referring back to the roast that AIB organized a few years ago. Bhatt spoke of making jokes about his body without even realizing its consequences. To his fans the popular comedian spoke of taking a new step forward in the path to self healing and retrospection.
 
Bhatt stepped down from any official position at AIB itself last year during the METOO movement. Following which he was seen rarely at any comedy or any such event.
 
We wish Tanmay Bhatt recovers from any issues that he is going through in his own way and time.
