We know that Deepika Padukone has dedicated this year to the cause of depression and helping people overcome it. Deepika has received much appreciation for this by her B-town colleagues. The latest to applaud her for this effort is her reel-screen dad Amitabh Bachchan.
Big B, who is working with Deepika in ‘Piku’, wrote in his blog, “I don’t know the extent of what Deepika has said. But I think it is very honest and daring of her to talk about it not so much to gain from it, but to make people aware of it. Awareness is a huge factor in most illnesses. I work for Diabetes and TB, and will be working for Hepatitis, and they are very prominent diseases. Many of them people are unaware of how to avoid, or at times are even unaware that they are affected by it. If I am going to be talking about a particular disease and know enough about it, I would definitely do it.”
“We did that with Polio, worked for eight years and today India is polio-free. I am not saying that we don’t go through phases where you are depresed or frustrated. All of us go through it, but we try and find a way out.”
Well, what are your thoughts on this?
