Actress Deepika Padukone is being trolled on social media for her posts on mental health.

On Thursday morning hashtags 'Repeat After Me' and 'Deepika' were top trends on Twitter with over 22k and 14k tweets, respectively.
A user tweeted, "Instead of selling a disease get it treated #RepeatAfterMe."
Kasautii Zindagii Kay is making news for the core group of actors who are quitting it. Recently, Sahil Anand and Parth Samthaan have resigned and the channel and makers are looking for their replacement. But, it's not as easy as it sounds.
Parth earned huge popularity for his portrayal of Anurag Basu in the reboot version of KZK. The show also topped TRP charts for his chemistry with lead actress Erica Fernandes, who plays Prerna Sharma.

Sandhya Suri, among the first women officers to serve on a warship, has strongly condemned the wrong portrayal of facts in the newly released flick "Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl" and said that the story has been distorted badly only to promote its actress Janhvi Kapoor and has nothing to do with the real character of Gunjan Saxena.
"As an officer, I refused to watch the film because its initial portrayal in the trailer was wrong as they projected Gunjan to be the first woman officer to fly in the Air Force, which is a wrong fact. Next, the way she has been shown ragged and abused, projects the armed forces in a bad light. It never happens the way it has been shown," the ex-officer told IANS.
