Deepika Padukone's struggle with depression

Deepika, in the interview, stated that the phase of depression was the worst phase of her life that she had experienced. She also explained how her mother helped her immensely to make her realize that she was experiencing something which cannot be ignored, that is depression and then helped her grow out of it through medical help.

The Piku actor said that her mother used to travel back and forth from her place to Deepika's, which had become a usual thing for them. But what was unusual was the sudden breakdown of Deepika's which made her mother realise that she needs medical help. Deepika never mentioned these feelings to her parents as they did not live with her and she did not want to bother them.

With the help of her family, especially her mother, Deepika was able to realise that she needs professional help for her mental health and wellbeing. The doctors told her that she was suffering from "Clinical Depression", and the acknowledgement itself was the first step towards growing out of it for Padukone.
