Deepika Padukone, who has been a victim of depression in the past, has always openly shared about the sufferings she went through. To help people going through a tough phase in their lives, she started the 'Live Love Laugh Foundation'. She has urged people to provide love and care to those suffering mental illness.

Having battled depression at an early stage in her career, the actress started her foundation with the aim to create awareness, de-stigmatise depression and encourage those afflicted with mental health issues to seek help.

On World Health Day last week, Deepika joined hands with the Karnataka government to spread the message.

Talking about this, she said in a statement: "Depression can strike anyone regardless of their age, background or economic status. Unfortunately, those who suffer from depression and other mental health issues face prejudice and discrimination."

Recent initiatives by the government show that the authorities are committed to addressing and combating the imposing challenge that depression presents. I hope together we create an environment where people afflicted with mental illnesses feel comfortable, safe and loved."

Currently, Dippy is busy with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's historic period drama "Padmavati", which also stars Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor.
