Deepika Padukone wants to have a mental health professional on film sets!

Deepika Padukone has a huge fan following and the actress never dithers in expressing her views. The Chennai Express actress has regularly spoken about mental health and how she dealt with her depression and has always come ahead to help others who face the same. In a latest media chat, the actress opened talked about the depiction of mental health in Indian cinema. 
When questioned how much further does she think we need to go in terms of a more thorough portrayal of mental health in Indian cinema? And how will we get there? Deepika Padukone responded, With “understanding and empathy”. She told that if an actor were portraying a character with a physical ailment, for example, they would do their research and due diligence in order to discern exactly how to depict their condition. The same courtesy needs to be extended to mental illnesses. According to her the actors, writers and directors shouldn’t be winging it. “We should afford the same honesty and authenticity to characters with mental illnesses as we do to biopics.”
Furthermore, Deepika Padukone revealed that one thing she personally hopes to do in the next few years is to have a therapist present on the film sets. “We have a doctor on set, so I don’t see why we can’t have a mental health professional too. During Chhapaak (2020), I brought on a therapist for myself because there were days where I would have a panic attack or feel claustrophobic,” disclosed the actress.
