At the event, Deepika spoke openly about her battle with depression, "To put on a front every single day like everything is okay in your life when actually that’s far from reality. You’re smiling and bringing joy into other people’s lives when you have none," DNA quoted the actress as saying.

She also congratulated the United States for their increased awareness about mental health issues as compared to India, where, she said, "the problem is further compounded by a lack of resources."
