Hrithik Finds Deepika Courageous

A few days ago, Deepika Padukone admitted that she  was struggling with anxiety and depression last year and had to consult a couple of psychologists.

Hrithik, who has not yet worked with Deepika in any film, lauds Deepika's brave confession. Talking to at Lightbox preview theatre where he had come to see the Oscar nominated Birdman, the Koi Mil Gaya actor said, " I am very proud of Deepika. It needs a lot of courage to say such a thing."

Not so long ago, Amitabh Bachchan came out in support of the Happy New Year actress. Big B wrote in his blog, "I don't know the extent of what Deepika has said. But I think it is very honest and daring of her to talk about it not so much to gain from it, but to make people aware of it.

Awareness is a huge factor in most illnesses. I work for Diabetes and TB, and will be working for Hepatitis, and they are very prominent diseases. Many of them people are unaware of how to avoid, or at times are even unaware that they are affected by it. If I am going to be talking about a particular disease and know enough about it, I would definitely do it."
