Mumbai: Actor Deepika Padukone, who opened up recently about having experienced depression, was apparently not the only one in low spirits. Her love interest, actor Ranveer Singh, too, was very depressed during the same period.
“Deepika was suffering, it’s true, but Ranveer was the one who was disturbed and was seeking help. He even saw a therapist,” a source told a Mumbai tabloid.
Early in January 2015, Padukone spoke to Hindustan Times and revealed that up until last 2014 she struggled with anxiety and depression.
Padukone explained how, while her career was thriving and she was rising to become one of Bollywood’s most sought-after actors, she was simultaneously battling mental illness.
She went on to talk about how it was a friend’s suicide due to anxiety and depression, as well as her own personal experiences, that encouraged her to speak up about this issue, one that isn’t widely discussed in India.
