Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone is going through a purple patch in her life. The ‘Padmaavat’ actress couldn’t have asked for a better 2018 as she married the love of her life Ranveer Singh in Italy’s Lake Como. But life has its ups and downs. The 33-year-old actress in 2015 had opened up about her problems with depression.
The ‘Piku‘ actress also encouraged people and her fans to speak about their battle with depression. Deepika despite being a superstar had the guts to talk about her insecurities and that was a very brave thing to do. The ‘Happy New Year‘ actress has often spoken about her battle with depression on various platforms. And now, the actress’ story will find a place in an upcoming children’s book.
The book titled ‘The Dot That Went For A Walk’ is written by Lakshmi Nambiar, Reema Gupta, and Sarada Akkineni. The book talks about the stories of 51 accomplished Indian women, who will introduce the concept of Women Power to kids from an early stage.
Sarada Akkineni informed tabloid Mid-Day that Deepika was insightful and forthcoming while discussing her chapter. The book will also include illustrations by 51 artists across India and Deepika’s illustration will be created by Ritu Bhattacharya.
On the work front, Deepika Padukone is preparing for Meghna Gulzar’s ‘Chhappak’. The film is based on the story of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal. Deepika Padukone has always been upfront about many issues regarding her life and believes in calling spade a spade.
We wish Deepika Padukone a happy and prosperous 2019.
