deepika padukone battle with depression: KBC13 Deepika Padukone Goes Emotional Before Amitabh Bachchan: Did Not Feel Like Living Anymore During Battle With Depression

Deepika Padukone is one of the few Bollywood actresses who first raised her voice about depression. Deepika admitted that she has been a victim of depression and there is no harm in telling or talking about it. On Friday, Deepika Padukone and Farah Khan reached the special episode of ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati 13’. The host of the show Amitabh Bachchan was sitting in front. During this, Deepika shared the experience of her depression days. While narrating the pain, not only Deepika but also Amitabh Bachchan became emotional. Deepika said that that was a period when her will to live was over.

The talk started because of Amitabh’s question
Actually, during the show host Amitabh Bachchan asked Deepika and Farah for what noble purpose she is participating in the quiz show? In response, Deepika said that she was a victim of depression in 2014. He has since started a Mental Health Foundation, which destigmatizes mental health. Taking the matter further in this episode, Deepika narrated her pain, which anyone would shudder to hear.

‘Many times… Many times it happened…’
Amitabh asked Deepika that when did you realize that you are suffering from depression? To this, Deepika said, ‘Suddenly I felt that there was a strange feeling in my stomach, I felt an emptiness.’ Talking about her battle with depression, Deepika said, ‘There was a time when I did not want to go to work. Didn’t want to meet anyone. I didn’t want to do anything. Many times… many times this happened… I don’t know whether I should say it or not, but the will to live… I felt that I didn’t want to be alive anymore. There is no purpose in my life. Deepika got emotional just saying this. Amitabh also kept staring at Deepika.


Farah said – then we were shooting for the film
Choreographer and director Farah Khan made another disclosure during this time in the show. She told Amitabh Bachchan, ‘When she was in depression, she was shooting for our film ‘Happy New Year’. We had absolutely no idea what situation they were going through. I was thinking for many years that nothing like this ever happened to him.

Amitabh said – pray you stay healthy
Hearing these things, Amitabh Bachchan prayed to God for Deepika. He said, ‘We all pray that you stay healthy and such a situation should never happen again. You said your very personal thing in front of all of us. People will definitely be impressed by it and think that if it can happen to you then it can happen to anyone.
