A couple of days ago, I told you guys how Deepika Padukone empathized with Ranbir Kapoor post the failure of the latter’s last release, Bombay Velvet. Though RK Jr. didn’t make to it DP’s recently held Piku success bash, the actress didn’t mind as she knew that he was going through a difficult phase. However, it seems Ranbir was completely unaware of her battle with depression until she came out in the open and spoke about it. He told DNA:
I didn’t know about Deepika’s depression at all. I have no idea. It depends from person to person. When an actor talks about something, you have to understand, they’re sometimes role models, they can inspire people. When an actor talks about something, it always has to come from the intention of wanting to improve somebody else’s life or mental health or problem or disability. Like Hrithik Roshan spoke so vehemently about his stammering problem. It is not about speaking about it but also giving them the solution to it. I think that’s what’s important. When you speak about a problem and just talk about it, that’s sympathy. When you give them a solution, you’re doing something for society and helping them. In that sense, yes, it’s important. How do you overcome your disability, your fears? If you can inspire people with that, I think that’s brilliant.
Well said, Ranbir! During the same interview, he also spoke about his girlfriend Katrina Kaif like never before. Here’s what he said.
