Being the highest paid actress in India, her work commitments know no bounds. In fact, Deepika is one busy woman, besides her acting career, she has also managed to be there for people suffering from mental illness through her NGO, Love Love Laugh. Last night, the actress flew to New York to address the issue of anxiety as she attended a fundraising dinner for the Youth Anxiety Center.
Founded in 2013 by New York–Presbyterian Hospital (in association with its medical school affiliates, Weill Cornell and Columbia University) and spearheaded by Anna Wintour, Tory Burch, Vera Wang, Ana Pincus, and Dr. Herbert Pardes, the YAC is dedicated to the treatment of youths suffering from depression and anxiety through research and clinical programming.

Apart from research and outreach programmes,The Youth Anxiety Center has conducted more than 75,000 treatment sessions in six years…something to be very proud of! Thank You #AnnaWintour for inviting me as your guest to this very special evening and allowing me to share my story. I wish you all the very best and look forward to supporting the centres future initiatives. As the African proverb goes, “If you want to go fast go alone, if you want to go far, go together”. @tlllfoundation #youthanxietycentre @voguemagazine
Deepika looked stunning in a fringed Alberta Ferretti pantsuit as she posed with Kendall Jenner. Kendall, too, looked gorgeous in a bodycon yellow dress. As Deepika relates to mental health, given that she battled depression for a long time, addressed the crowd about the same during the dinner. In a picture from last night with Kendall, Deepika was all smiles and shone like a boss as she posed for shutterbugs and wrote on her Instagram story, “I had the pleasure of meeting this beautiful soul … I wish you all the joy in the world and peace of mind … always! @kendalljenner”.
