Actor Deepika Padukone has found herself mired in controversy after she took to Twitter on Sunday to share a photo where she and WHO Chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus can be seen. The photo is an invite of sorts for a discussion that the two will hold on April 23. The topic under discussion is "Prioritizing mental health during the pandemic and beyond". The 'Chhapaak' actor also hopped on to Instagram stories to put a questionnaire column for her followers and asked them to put forth any questions related to mental health.

A year after going public with her diagnosis, the 34-year-old actor launched The Live Love Laugh Foundation to create awareness around mental health. Talking about mental health in an interview earlier in April, Deepika said, “Post mental illness, I feel like I was on this journey already, of understanding life beyond materialism, and wanting to grow and evolve as a person. I feel like that journey for me already began in 2014, so I am not finding this period difficult at all.”
