It’s been quite sometime since Deepika Padukone came out to the media and spoke about her battle with depression. She won a lot of support and appreciation from people for speaking about an issue as critical as that. And now, thanks to her, depression is being seen in a whole new light.
Her boyfriend, Ranveer Singh is all praises for her too. He said,
I was in tears when I watched her talking about depression on a TV chat show. It takes a lot of mental and emotional fortitude to come out with something that has such a large stigma attached to it. Deepika has won me over for life with the kind of strength and courage she has. It’s incredible.
She truly is incredible!
But then, when asked about the time he was dragged into her depression story, here’s what he had to say,
I was truly angered with the article; and I still haven’t gotten over it. In fact, I am so angry that it would take a big effort on my part to not physically assault the person who wrote it, if I ever come across him. Can I say – out of thin air — that a person is suffering from AIDS? How can you be so random, callous, careless and insensitive to such a serious issue?
That anger is justified!
