Deepika Padukone sported a white shirt with dramatic sleeves and pointed collar. The relaxed bottom pants completed her look. Her hair left open in soft curls along with simple eye makeup and red lips perfectly complemented her extravagant all-white dress. To balance her overall look, Deepika paired her elegant outfit with just a pair of simple dangling earring.
Deepika Padukone, who suffered anxiety and depression in the past, launched her first lecture series on mental health. "It's been four years to Live Love Laugh Foundation and today we launched our first lecture series and I think we have come a long way," said the 33-year-old actor.
Deepika Padukone on the biggest struggle with the issue said, "I think the conversation has really opened up and there is less stigma [about mental health] then there used to be four years ago, but certainly we have a long way to go in terms of awareness and that's why we really need to keep the conversation alive."
Deepika Padukone also thanked the media fraternity for their role in starting the "conversation about mental health."

Deepika Padukone talking about the media involvement said, "I think as far as the conversation about mental health is concerned, we have come a long way. And I think media has a huge role to play in that. Especially by opening up the conversation in various ways, whether through interviews, write-ups or articles."
Deepika Padukone talking about the lecture series said, "The lecture series is to invite people from different profession from various parts of the world. Most importantly the people who are passionate about mental health and have us to talk about their journey and experience."
