Deepika Padukone reveals being suicidal

Talking about her depression, Deepika Padukone gave all the credit to her mother for recognizing the signs and symptoms because it just happened out of the blue. She said that she was on a career-high, everything was going well so there was no reason for which she should have felt that way.
