Prakash Padukone on Deepika’s Health
I was worried about the health of my daughter and we wanted her to be fine. A lot of experiences we go through in life makes you learn something and it makes you into a better person.
Deepika Padukone on Mental Illness
We need to stigmatize mental illness and spread awareness about mental health. I know in the current scenario we lead stressful lives but you have to keep reminding yourself that it is important to live, love and laugh. After all that is what life is all about. Most importantly for people like me who have had an experience with anxiety and depression, I think it is important to know that there is hope.
