Deepika Padukone just landed in Mumbai a few hours back. The superstar was in New York before that where she attended a fundraising event by the Youth Anxiety Centre. The stunner opened up about her battle with depression there and revealed the one thing that helped her come out of it. She posted a video on Instagram earlier this morning where she gave a sneak peek into what she spoke about at the event. The actress said, “300 Million people in the world suffer from anxiety and depression. Where I think the key to know is that depression and anxiety can creep up on absolutely anybody, from any profession, any gender, any part of the world. The toughest part for me was in the months when I didn’t know it was happening.”
She further added, “The day I understood and there was a name to it and it was called clinical depression, I already started feeling much better. If there is anything that I have learned in the journey of recovery, you need to be patient and that there is hope. Superman once said, ‘Once you choose hope, anything is possible’.”
Kudos to you girl!
