What exactly is aphasia?

The neurological disorder is linked to cognitive abilities, which impacts one's ability to verbally communicate, write or even comprehend words/what others are saying.

Prior to the diagnosis, industry insides had claimed that the actor was having a hard time on set- including struggling with his lines and often appearing confused by his surrounding.
