- Deepika was 'emotionally disturbed' after filming the jauhar scene
- Maybe people thought I was depressed and I can't act: Deepika
- Deepika Padukone said that she is in a 'good space'
At the summit, Deepika Padukone also said that she may have lost some roles after she opened up about her battle with depression but that doesn't affect her. "Maybe there are people who haven't offered me films because they think I was depressed and I can't act. Maybe, I don't know. I'm in a good space because I can choose the movies that I want to act in, but I don't think everyone has that luxury of where they want to work or when they want to work," she said.
"I didn't think about the repercussions (of opening about her personal experience). The idea really was to change the way people in India and the world see mental illness," she added.
Deepika Padukone has talked about battling depression at length and has initiated Live Love Laugh foundation, which aims to help people fight mental illness.
