Mumbai: Actor Deepika Padukone may have been vocal about her battle with depression, but the actor says while opening up her aim was not to look “brave”. The 32-year-old star said when she shared her struggles for the first time, she just wanted to be “honest” with herself and her fans.

Deepika talked about her fear of slipping into depression again, “When I start feeling anxious, I feel a knot in my stomach. I immediately know that I need to take care of myself and control my thoughts. Maybe breathe better and sleep more. It has created so much awareness of my physical well-being. Because it was such a bad experience for me that I’m always aware now. Obviously, that fear of slipping into it again is there. I would never want to experience that again. So I’m always aware of my thoughts, feelings, and emotions.”

“For me coming out with my experience and sharing it with the world really was about being honest. At that point, four years ago, I didn’t think about it as being brave. I didn’t think that it was meant to be revolutionary” she said.

“In my case, I didn’t know what I was feeling or going through and fortunately, it was my mother who was my caregiver and recognised my symptoms in the early stages. I was not feeling motivated anymore, I didn’t know why I wasn’t happy in my life and she was the one who took me to a counsellor who immediately recognised that I needed medical help.”

“I felt completely transparent. There was no fear of being judged and today I think it just made me a much happier person. It made me understand how fragile life is. It’s made me much more sensitive to people’s thoughts, feelings and emotions,” she added.

Deepika motivated everyone with her words on depression. Dressed in a pristine white ensemble with her hair neatly tied, Deepika looked gorgeous.

On a related note, Ranveer Singh is currently busy shooting for Simmba. He will next be seen in Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy.
