Now we're sure this piece of news has surprised you as much as us
Deepika Padukone was depressed and even needed medical assistance! Yes, you heard that right. The Chennai Express heroine confessed in an interview to a leading daily that she was suffering from anxiety and depression last year. That is definitely shocking considering that the actress has had a successful stint at the box office last year and the year before.
Deepika, who is associated with WHO's (World Health Oraganisation) mental health program has talked about her lean phase. The Happy New Year actress said, "There is a shame and stigma attached to talking about depression." The Piku heroine who has a busy work calendar initially thought it was work stress and exhaustion. The Tamaasha actress confessed that she shot for her film Happy New Year climax in this delicate condition. And she admits that it was with help from her family, psychiatrists and medication that she overcame this issue. The actor also said, "Nothing including life makes sense to people suffering from depression. Overcoming it has made me a stronger person and I now value my life much more. Accepting it and speaking about it has liberated me."
It seems that being on the top isn't as much fun after all. Coz not so long ago Yo Yo Honey Singh's wifey too shared a similar experience about her hubby. Back in November, his wife Shalini told the media, “Right now, he (Honey Singh) is physically and emotionally so weak that he often breaks down!”
We're happy to know that Deepika is back to her happy self. And after the dimpled beauty beauty opening up, we're sure many others will benefit too.
