Almost all the stars of Indian film industry offered their condolences the family of Sushant Singh Rajput who killed himself on 14th of June in his residence in Mumbai. Not only cinema celebrities, many other influential personalities including cricket players and politicians came forward to express their sorrow on the unexpected decision made by the young actor. Starting from Amitabh Bhachchan to Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra and several other colleagues of the actor posted tweets along with the public regarding the demise of the 34 year old.
Unlike others who posted tweets on that day, actress Deepika Padukone who is considered as one of the leading actress of the Bollywood film industry, is constantly creating awareness regarding depression. On 14th of June, she said that she herself went through mental illness, asked people to talk, communicate, Express and seek help. You are not alone. We are in this together. And most importantly, there is hope” she wrote in her post
Followed by this, Deepika constantly uploading posts regarding depression. On 15th of June, the actress uploaded a post writing “Repeat after me : Depression is an illness”.
On 16th, her post said “Repeat after me : Depression is a form of mental illness”
“Repeat after me : Depression is an illness like any other illness” read her post which was uploaded on 17th.
Today, Deepika Padukone compared depression with Cancer and Diabetes. “Repeat after me : Depression is an illness like any other illness such as Cancer and Diabetes” her today’s post read.
However, these posts from the actress didn’t go well with the majority number of followers in Twitter. Many of them disagreed with what Deepika Padukone is preaching and said Nepotism in Bollywood killed Sushant Singh Rajput, not depression. Few twitter users went one step ahead and accused that Deepika’s husband Ranveer grabbed Sushant’s film opportunities. Few even asked why Deepika hasn’t posted any condolence message for Sushant till now.

You are using Sushants death as some kind of opportunity to publicize your foundation !!
Instead of doing this ask your industry friends to change their preferences while casting actors. https://t.co/QYXCyNOPEL
