    The video is so powerful, right? Deepika Padukone has been helping people suffering from depression since close to 3 years now and her NGO 'The Live Love Laugh Foundation' is spreading its wings all across the country and reaching out to people who need help to cope up with their depression.

    During an interview in 2015, Deepika Padukone had said about her condition as, "There were days when I would feel okay, but at times, within a day, there was a roller-coaster of feelings. Finally, I accepted my condition. The counselling helped, but only to an extent. Then, I took medication, and today I am much better."
