  1. Deepika Padukone has time and again proven herself by taking up challenging roles and doing justice to them on-screen. After 'Padmaavat', which the actor herself admits to be one of the most difficult films in her career, she is now set to greet us with another path-breaking movie on acid attack titled 'Chhapaak'. Deepika very recently shared the first look of the film on her Instagram account. View this post on Instagram A character that will stay with me forever...#Malti Shoot begins today!#Chhapaak Releasing-10th January, 2020. @meghnagulzar @foxstarhindi @vikrantmassey87 A post shared by Deepika Padukone (@deepikapadukone) on Mar 24, 2019 at 8:30pm PDT Deepika looks nothing like herself in the first look, and the make-up and prosthetics look pretty convincing in evoking the faces of numerous acid attack survivors we have seen on TV and otherwise, over the years. Here is everything you need to know about 'Chhapaak' at this point. View this post on Instagram Women's power ♥ï¸ Lovely picture with, Mom Meghna Ji & my love puhu ð¤ #stopsaleacid #womensday2019 #equality #empowerment @meghnagulzar @pihu_she A post shared by Laxmi Agarwal (@thelaxmiagarwal) on Mar 8, 2019 at 3:50am PST 1. 'Chhapaak' is being filmed under the directorial vision of Meghna Gulzar of 'Raazi' fame, and this is Deepika and Meghna's first collaboration together. 2. The plot of the movie is based on the real life story of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal who was attacked at the age of 15 by a man and his two friends because she refused to marry the former. Ever since, Laxmi champions the cause of campaigning for the survivors' rights. View this post on Instagram "Not every acid attack survivor is like Laxmi, who, despite physical pain, social shaming and ostracism, came out of the experience, stronger, even victorious. There are many who are yet to overcome the trauma. I will be meeting some of these girls in the coming weeks and be working closely with them. I believe everyone needs to take mental health seriously and I'll have a dialogue with them and their families on this." - #deepikapadukone #Chhapaak WE ARE SO PROUD OF YOU @deepikapadukone ððððð A post shared by Deepika South FC (@deepikasouthfc) on Mar 22, 2019 at 9:29pm PDT 3. The film stars Vikrant Massey as the lead opposite Deepika, and we wonder if he shall be seen as Deepika's nemesis in 'Chhapaak'. 4. Deepika's character in the film is called Malti, and the movie goes on floors today in New Delhi. 5. 'Chhapaak' is being produced by Fox Star Studios, KA Entertainment and Mriga Films, and it is set to release on January 10, 2020.
  2. As last year marked the completion of a decade since the deadly attacks of 26/11, there still exists individuals who survived through this hell and are now living a normal life. One such individual is my client, RSK (name undisclosed), but is brave enough to narrate her story. A story that she now feels is just part of the past and has blown away like wind. Shot And Lying In A Pool Of Blood © RSK A then resident of California, RSK had come over to Mumbai to attend a wedding and decided to meet with her friends at a restaurant at the Oberoi Hotel at Nariman Point. Before even placing an order, RSK and her friends heard something that sounded like “firecrackers” and upon inquiring they were told by the hotel staff that it was the sound of the locals celebrating India's win during a cricket match. The next thing they heard was “duck! duck! This was followed by a shower of bullets and a hand grenade explosion. Two of her friends passed away on the spot, while one of her other friends managed to leave safely. RSK however wasn't able to leave, because she was shot with several bullets and also by shrapnel from the explosion. RSK shouted for help (in Hindi and English) for the next 18 hours lying immobile in her own blood; until a policeman heard her and carried her on a stretcher. It was this time when she realized that one of her arms was hanging loose, almost detached and that she was injured all over her body. Learning To Live Again With A Bullet Still In Her Body After being admitted to a nearby hospital on 27/11, RSK underwent multiple surgeries including bone grafting, a nerve implant and removal of about 7 bullets and shrapnel from her body. She was discharged officially from all medical treatment in February 2009. In fact, she still has a bullet in her body behind her pelvis which was too risky to be removed. After receiving rigorous physiotherapy for the first two years post her surgeries, she finally gained back most of her mobility and movement. 20 Kilos Overweight And The Trap Of Stupid Diets RSK lost a lot of lean body mass staying immobile in the hospital for 3 months and once she returned home, she put on around 20 kilos during the course of a few years. There arrived a time when her doctor suggested her to undergo a knee-surgery due to increased stress on her joints due to high bodyweight. She would lose weight, and gain it back due to an unsustainable approach towards her diet and exercise. She tried a variety of diets: the “liquid” diet suggested by a famous nutritionist, the GM diet and etc. And the result was weight loss and even more weight gain post the dieting phase due to eating out of proportion. © RSK Counting Calories And Weight Training = 22 Kilos Lost It was not until 2017 that she realized the importance of following something more sustainable and consistent. Since then, her nutritionist asked her to focus on her overall caloric intake and macro nutrients; she was also allowed to enjoy some unhealthy options. “I love junk food and I eat some everyday. But I keep the portion-size in mind”, said RSK. She, now, also makes sure to accumulate at least 150 minutes of exercise per week which includes kickboxing, weight training and suspension training. From the time she took this decision, she successfully lost 22 kilos (from 99 kilos to 77 kilos) and has kept it off. Today, she not only feels lighter but also finds it easy to perform activities of daily living due to regular exercise. © RSK As RSK's fitness specialist, I push her just enough without going overboard. Due to limited range of motion in both her arms, I make sure that she trains through the available range. Her workouts include squats, pushups, deadlifts, lunges, burpees, jumping jacks and almost all movements one can think of. The suspension trainer is assistive during movements that require her to deload some weight for pain-free movement. She calls exercising “the necessary evil” but she makes sure to take out the time to engage in it 5 times a week. RSK is one of my special clients because she is one of the very few individuals I know who has seen death so closely. “I'm not scared to die anymore. But I value life more than ever”, said RSK when I asked her about her almost-fatal encounter. Apart from her will power, RSK gives credit to her supportive family and friends for getting her back to normalcy.
  3. A slew of social issues have found millennial voices, but mental health awareness still remains a taboo of sorts and Bollywood superstar Deepika Padukone is out to change exactly that. The actress, who has always broken the glass ceiling by coming out in the open about her own troubles with depression, once again pledged support to the cause on the occasion of World Mental Health Day, on Wednesday. “In 2014, I was diagnosed with clinical depression. But, in India, 90% of people who suffer from depression don't seek help,” she said in a video shared on her Twitter account. “Depression is like any other illness that requires intervention.” In her message, she also normalised mental health disorders and urged patients to share their stories using the #NotAshamed hashtag. #NotAshamed pic.twitter.com/DgewpgBpn5 — Deepika Padukone (@deepikapadukone) October 10, 2018 A study conducted by the World Health Organization in 2015 showed that one in five Indians may suffer from depression in their lifetime, which is equivalent to 20 crore people. Due to the stigma associated with mental illness, a lack of awareness, and limited access to professional help, only 10-12 per cent of these sufferers will seek help. Another study, carried out by Assocham last year, showed that clinical depression has risen by around 50 per cent in the last eight years. It does not make discernible urban-rural demographic differences and also states that most people who commit suicide are below the age of 44. It adds that 42.5 per cent of employees in the Indian private sector are afflicted with general anxiety disorder or depression, as compared to government employees. A private sector employee in India works for a minimum of 48-50 hours a week when compared to 33 hours a week in the UK and 40 hours a week in the US. In addition, the pay in these developed countries is almost six times more even after deducting the indexing prices and cost of living. According to 'Mental Health: TLLLF National Survey Report 2018,' commissioned by The Live Love Laugh Foundation (TLLLF), more than 75 percent of participants stated they would always feel sympathetic towards mental health patients. In the same vein though, they also exhibited feelings of fear (14 per cent would always be fearful), hatred (28 per cent feel hatred sometimes or always), and anger (43 per cent feel angry sometimes or always) towards people with mental illness. More than a quarter admitted that they would always be 'indifferent' towards people with mental illness. These admissions indicate the prevalent stigma in society, which when clubbed with an acute shortage of mental health specialists, presents the grim reality of the situation in India. The death of the globe-trotting, fine-dining Anthony Bourdain – he committed suicide in a Paris hotel room earlier this year – brought to fore our failings on a global level as well. Is there a solution, then? Diverse programmes and legislation, including the Rashtriya Bal Swasthya Karyakram and the Mental Health Care Act, could prove to be steps in the right direction for patients in India. But, as Harvard professors Vikram Patel and Shekhar Saxena write in their Indian Express column, proper implementation would require a genuine partnership of a diverse range of groups. From the mental health and development communities to policymakers and civil society, one and all need to come together to transform mental health across the country.

  4. The remarkable success of movies like 'Raazi', 'Gold' and 'Sanju', has had Bollywood riding on the wave of biopics and movies based on real life events. Films like 'Uri', 'Manikarnika' and 'Kesari' have only underlined the recent success of this trend further. © junglee pictures The latest addition to this list is director Meghna Gulzar's upcoming venture on acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal, featuring superstar Deepika Padukone. After giving us a heart-warming watch in 'Raazi', Gulzar is now set to make a biopic on acid attack survivor and activist, Laxmi, who was attacked at the age of 15, and has since been working for the welfare of acid attack survivors. © wikimedia Reportedly, Deepika Padukone will not only play the lead role, but will also wear the slip into the producer's shoes for the movie. Deepika told Mumbai Mirror, "When I heard this story, I was deeply moved as it's not just one of violence but of strength and courage, hope and victory. It made such an impact on me, that personally and creatively, I needed to go beyond and so the decision to turn producer." © instagram Gulzar, who's also made films like 'Talwar,'' said "Using Laxmi's story as a lens, we are attempting to explore these aspects and the consequences of acid-related violence in our society. This is what makes this must-told story relevant. Awareness is the first step towards change." On casting the 'Padmavat' actress, she said "I was instinctively convinced that Deepika would do justice to the character and the story. Also, her physicality matched with what I'd imagined for Laxmi's character. I'm grateful and encouraged that she was so spontaneous in her decision to do the film." © wikimedia Laxmi was recently in news for her financial struggles in the recent past. Upon learning of her misfortunes, Akshay Kumar even transferred Rs 5 lakh into her account so that she can find her feet. Laxmi's story is one of the most inspiring accounts of courage and bravery. We look forward to Deepika doing justice to it on the big screen.
  5. On days when Akshay Kumar is not busy smashing box office records with his exceptional movies, the actor is busy doing his bit for the welfare of the society and people. Recently, Akshay came to the rescue of acid attack survivor and activist Laxmi Agarwal, who has been struggling financially for a year now. After learning that Laxmi is facing a difficulty in making ends meet, Akshay transferred Rs. 5 lakh into her account so that she can find a job with dignity. © Instagram According to a report in Hindustan Times, he said, "My contribution is a very small gesture. I am embarrassed to even mention it. The idea is that Laxmi should be able to search for a job with dignity, without having to worry about paying house rent or stressing about not being able to provide a nutritious meal to her baby." © wikimedia He further added, "I wish people realise that when a person is in need of livelihood, medals, awards and certificates don't pay the bills. It's important to support through practical means." We wish more people can think like Akshay." According to the report in HT, Laxmi said that despite receiving numerous awards, walking the ramp and giving motivational talks, she did not have any money to even meet her basic needs. Laxmi was unemployed for a year, but after people got to know about her story, she has been flooded with job offers and financial aid too is pouring in from everywhere. © wikimedia Akshay Kumar is one of those few actors who actually takes action, instead of just posting about it on social media. Last year, Akshay helped raise Rs. 6.5 crores at the event for the families of the martyred soldiers. He also came up with the initiative called 'Bharat Ke Veer' along with the Home Ministry. Be it creating awareness about social issues through his movies or standing with the families of jawans, Akshay Kumar has never hesitated in helping people and probably that's the reason why people love him so much.
