Remember, You Are Not Alone. We are in this Together. And most importantly, there is Hope!”

The actress has battled depression before. She had opened up on the same while talking to WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus during an interaction. Deepika Padukone had said, “Mental illness happened to me when I had least expected it. In my case, it came with no warning signs. The general understanding was that I was at a professional high, I had successful consecutive hit movies, I was in an amazing relationship, my family has always been extremely supportive in my life. Everything was absolutely perfect. I remember waking up one morning and I fainted. There was a complete blackout and I hit my head. I used to live alone and luckily the house help had arrived. She saw me lying on the floor and sort of revived me. I gained consciousness, slept through the day, got an appointment with a general practitioner who said it was general exhaustion or blood pressure fluctuation. These were the physical signs.”
