Back in 2015, Deepika Padukone came forward and shared that she was diagnosed with anxiety and clinical depression. The actress also encouraged people to seek help for their problems.

A few days ahead of her wedding with Ranveer Singh, Deepika penned down a letter addressing her struggle with anxiety and depression. The handwritten letter will soon be published in the 22nd anniversary edition of Elle India. Elle shared Deepika's note on its Instagram account.

The caption of the post reads, "A few days before her wedding @deepikapadukone wrote a letter addressing her struggle with anxiety and depression, for our 22nd Anniversary Issue. By publicly talking about her own battles, she empowered many to reach out and seek help. Her letter is full of empathy and kindness, a reminder that (in the words of Stephen Fry) 'it will be sunny one day'."



Earlier this year, speaking on 'Making Mental Wellness A Boardroom Priority' at the World Congress on Information Technology and Nasscom India Leadership Forum, Deepika said, "It's okay to have moments of weakness, okay to break down and okay to cry. It's okay if you don't look great all the time."

She stressed the need for people to come out and speak about mental illness. "You are not alone. One in three or five persons feels depression. It's going to be next big epidemic to hit our country," added Deepika.

Meanwhile, Deepika Padukone tied the knot with Ranveer Singh on November 14 in a traditional Konkani ceremony, which was followed by a Sindhi wedding on November 15. Both the functions were fiercely intimate with just about 40 guests in attendance and a ban on prying mobile phones and paparazzi. The security at the wedding venues was reportedly at par with that provided for a meeting of world leaders.
