Deepika Padukone has always been in news due to her professional and personal life. Apart from these two things, the Chennai Express has always been in news for openly talking about depression. As we have entered the 4th phase of lockdown, the dimpled beauty has come up with a new initiative that focuses on mental health. The Piku actress, in collaboration with Instagram, announced an initiative ‘Wellness Guide’
Deepika Padukone becomes the first Indian celebrity to have this feature added to her Instagram account. In a released statement, the actress said, “I am sure we all agree that the past several weeks have not only been exceptionally unusual but also very difficult; uncertainty about the future, loss of livelihoods, and the inability to be around family and loved ones, are just a few of the challenges facing us. And situations such as these often lead to or aggravate mental illness. I look forward to sharing with all of you some of the things I’ve been doing over the past several weeks to nurture my mental health, and I hope you find them useful too.”
Speaking about the same Ankhi Das, Director, Public Policy, Facebook – India, South and Central Asia, said, " The 'Wellness Guide' is a step in that direction and we couldn’t be more thrilled to partner with Deepika Padukone and her foundation, who’ve been playing a leading role in promoting consciousness and action on mental health.”
Meanwhile, Deepika is making her fans’ lockdown easy as she’s been continuously sharing some throwback pictures with family or adorable ones with hubby Ranveer Singh. (ALSO READ: Deepika Padukone Hooked To Sara Ali Khan-Kartik Aaryan Number Shayad From Love Aaj Kal)
