Deepika Padukone, in one of her recent blog posts, went on to write about her battle with depression, and in the post on New York Times, she went on to reveal certain things she has never spoken about earlier. She wrote, "I started experiencing symptoms in 2014. It was mid-February, and I had fainted after a long day of work. The next morning, I woke up with an empty feeling in my stomach and the urge to cry."

She also went on to talk about her high in the career and her personal life, and yet, how it was difficult to get sleep. “On paper, that should have been a great period in my life — I had just starred in four of my most memorable movies, my family was extremely supportive and I was dating the man who would later become my husband. I had no reason to feel the way I did. But I did. I was exhausted and sad all the time. If someone played a happy song to cheer me up, it only made me feel worse. Waking up every day felt like a huge endeavour."

Talking about her journey of taking professional help, “For the duration of their stay I put on a brave face. But as they packed their bags before heading to the airport, I broke down in tears. My mother looked at me and asked, ‘What’s wrong?’ But I had no answer. She asked me if I was having issues at work. She asked if my partner and I were doing O.K. All I could do was shake my head. After taking a moment to herself, she said, ‘Deepika, I think you need professional help.’”

On the work front, Deepika is gearing up for her upcoming film Chhapaak, and will also be seen in '83 co-starring Ranveer Singh.
