Recently she revealed that she is suffering from depression and anxiety. Pouring her emotions out in an interview to Hindustan Times, she has revealed how difficult it was to realize that she was suffering from depression.  She said, “In early 2014, while I was being appreciated for my work, one morning, I woke up feeling different. A day earlier, I had fainted due to exhaustion; it was all downhill from there. I felt a strange emptiness in my stomach.”

Deepika explained how difficult it was for her to cope with depression and that phase. She said she kept herself busy at work and surrounding herself with people but it helped only for a while. “My breath was shallow, I suffered from lack of concentration and I broke down often” said she.

She also tried to be brave in front of her parents but ultimately one day she broke down in front of her mother. It was then when her mother told her to consult a psychologist friend. She took a second opinion from another psychologist and then accepted it that she was suffering from anxiety and depression.
