“I think it’s amazing the work that she and everybody else do in India. There are just not enough people who talk about mental health. The fact that people like her use their platforms to promote mental health is very inspiring, and I think that the more people we can get to talk about mental health–whether it’s writing books, celebs or just grassroots level or teachers talking about it in school to children or families talking about it–better for everyone,” Siddharth told TOI.

Siddharth went on to reveal that he and Deepika never opened up about their mental health issues to each other while they were dating. “For me, my journey with mental health started in 2015-16. As I have said in the book, I was really unaware of a lot of the things that I was going through before then. So mental health was not really something that we talked about; it wasn’t really a conversation I was having with anyone,” he said.

When Amitabh Bachchan recently asked Deepika about her struggle with depression on Kaun Banega Crorepati, she said, “I didn’t feel like going to work, I didn’t feel like meeting anybody. I didn’t go out. I didn’t feel like doing anything. Many times, and I don’t know if I should say this, but I didn’t feel like living anymore.”

On the work front, Deepika will be seen in Kabir Singh‘s 83, Shakun Batra‘s upcoming directorial, YRF’s Pathan alongside Shah Rukh Khan and John Abraham, Siddharth Anand‘s Fighter opposite Hrithik Roshan and The Intern remake with Amitabh Bachchan.
