Deepika Padukone might be a successful star who has achieved both national and international recognition. But hard as it is to accept, this smiling, the succesful actor suffered from depression in the past. However, instead of hiding the fact or sweeping it under the carpet, Deepika fought with the ailment and has now started a foundation to help others who are suffering from depression.
