However, Deepika’s impact transcends the silver screen with her venturing into unique avenues by investing in startups that benefit India’s environment and innovation.
In a recent season of Koffee with Karan, when Karan Johar asked her, “what’s a misconception people have about Deepika Padukone?” She gave a befitting reply, “that I’m stoppable.”

Beyond her entrepreneurial endeavors, Deepika is actively involved in her foundation, Live Love Laugh, which aids individuals dealing with anxiety, depression, and mental health issues. Her candidness about her own mental health struggles has helped destigmatize these topics.
