Deepika Padukone to launch her ‘mental health’ foundation in October

Actress Deepika Padukone, who has personally been a victim of depression, says she is planning to launch her foundation dedicated to addressing the issue of mental health on October 10 — World Mental Health Day.

“Mental health is what I’m looking at from a cause point of view. And we will be launching next month and October 10 is World Mental Health Day and that’s the day we’re looking at launching the foundation officially,” said Deepika.

The actress talked about her foundation while addressing media persons at an event here on Friday.

However, the ‘Piku’ actress refrained from divulging any details about her plans for her foundation which is named “Live Love Laugh”.

“But we’ll meet separately for that and we’ll talk to you about the plans on what the foundation is looking at doing over the next couple of years,” she said.

Deepika had launched the logo of her “Live Love Laugh” foundation on Twitter in August.

She had earlier said that her “fight against depression” prompted her to set up an institute to address mental health among Indians.



  • Good effort and appreciated! But she needs to be admitted to mental hospital for deliberately exposing her cleavage and ranting at media for publicity!!

  • She was fighting against depression because of doing too much movies with ugly sarook and i think sarook also tried to exploit her..sexually

  • Thank you Deepika mam.because mental leela bansali is the 1st person who’ll admit on this foundation.moreover even Deepika too is remaining in depression as she never thought after signing the film fraud bansali will do clash against HER favourite KING KHAN which actually lead to her deep She finally released a foundation to admit his mental director after he came to road by losing all of his money after monkeyrao mastani will compete with Bombay velvet,ROFL.

    And soon after year ON NEXT EID 2016,our salman bhaijaan and his fans too will get admit into the foundation.

  • I love her attitude.She never speaks ill about any of his contemporaries and is always level-headed unlike Kangana who it seems is on a different post the success of TWMR

  • I always felt that she is just physically beautiful but not mentally (As a publicity-hungry freak she he has a knack of creating unnecessary controversies to stay in the limelight for her own selfish purposes and also she suffers from some kind of attitude problem) , now that she is doing something good let’s hope that it does a world of good to her drama queen like attitude in return.

    Deepika we urgently require the services of ur foundation for our eternally retarded dumb mental patients like sss, iamdhakan, javed, xxxzone, babaji , sunny Leone ka kurchi etc , please admit them as soon as possible and free us all from their nonsense :D

  • @Anand Why would any girl try to show off her cleavage in public.TOI had shown her cleavage without her consent and that is the reason why she came out and lashed the daily.And how did the entire controversy helped her movie only a sane person like you could explain

  • Good idea Deepika but may end up bankrupting you coz paying for all that electricity that will be needed just for the electrical shock treatments of ’empty brain zone’ and complaining complan boy will you cost an arm n a leg…! Is it worth it… IMO it is not as prison is a more cost effective solution…!

  • @2:13pm

    she got upset coz she wasnt paid for that pic or otherwise she would have shown alot more had she been properly reimbursed.

    Hypocrisy stinks- use media when they want free publicity but when they dont exposure they they want privacy- media is 24/7 business so they need celebs 24/7- deepika knows this so should have just stayed quiet but the drama queen in her wanted more headlines so blew things out of proportion…!

  • Depression is commonly found in Paglapur where the natives annually suffer from depression post the release of their Sarkars crapfest…!

    Some are still suffering from the effects of Diwali 2012….!

  • I watched every film of Deepika since cocktail even i watched non actor arjun kapoor film Finding Fanny but Sadly will skip BM n it is going to be a disaster anyhow Tamasha sureshoot do 150cr n Deepika always remain the Queen of Bollywood

  • There s a sayin
    “only a mental retard can feel and understand another.”” how true for lallu retard fans. Get admitted and get well soon
    @SALMAN fans: we want Deepika in SALMAN s next. And now she is bad.
    Hypocrisy at its peak. Rofl

  • @Nakara Noam : Check out the heights of hypocrisy from srkians :

    * Before HNY srk release : HNY coming with 300 crs strom in India !!!!!!
    * After release : Farah Khan ruined it

    * Before BB release : Naam se hi bhojpuri Masala crap, it will be Jai Ho 2

    * After BB release : Harshali and Nawaz did 300 crs in BB. But wait !! Nawaz’s solo (Manjhi) did even earn 25 crs lifetime and Harshali is yet to star in another movie to show her stardom !!!!!!!!!

    * Now before PRDP : Flop wedding album is coming
    * After PRDP release : Sonam and Neil Nitin saved it !!!!!!!! Lol

    Too much fun !!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Buddha Shahrukh should retire from Bollywood now. He no longer has any fan base. People are fed up of him. He is ugly and he no longer has age. His movies wont work anymore now and he has no chance to rule box office any more. Hit time is over now.
