For the past few weeks, India has been dealing with the second COVID-19 wave. It has been tough for all the Indians as people are struggling to find required medicines and beds for their family members. Several Bollywood stars are coming forward to help people. Today, Deepika Padukone shared a list of verified mental health helplines on her social media.
As everyone knows, the Chhapaak actor is quite open about mental health issues, and she is also the founder of The Live Love Laugh Foundation. A lot of COVID-19 warriors are stepping out every day and helping the patients and their family. Even lockdown has affected many people with anxiety and panic attacks.
On Deepika Padukone’s Instagram page, one will find many verified mental health helplines for different cities. In her caption, she tells people that we all are in this together, and there is hope that things will be fine one day from the current crisis.
“As millions of us (me and my family included) strive to stay afloat, let us not forget that our emotional well-being in this current crisis, is equally important! Remember, You Are Not Alone. We are in this Together.
And most importantly, there is Hope!🙏🏽 YouAreNotAlone @tlllfoundation,” she captioned the post.
Take a look at Deepika Padukone’s Mental Health Helplines post:
On the other hand, veteran actor Dilip Kumar was hospitalised in Mumbai on Friday afternoon. The 98-year-old actor faced some health issues due to which he was taken to Khar’s Hinduja Hospital. As the COVID-19 cases are increasing, it raised concern among many fans all over the nation. The news comes after his tweets where he prayed for everyone suffering due to COVID-19’s second wave. “Praying for Everybody” and “#StaySafe everybody” are some of his recent tweets.
Now in an interaction in PTI, Dilip Kumar’s wife Saira Banu confirmed that the actor was indeed hospitalised. However, it is nothing to be worried about, and it is not COVID. Banu asked people to pray for Dilip Saab and also shared that her husband will be discharged today.
Saira Banu said, “All the tests have been conducted by the team of doctors and Sahab (Kumar) is fine. He will be discharged today. We need your prayers.”
Dilip Kumar and Saira Banu’s family friend Faisal Farooqui also share an update on why the veteran actor was admitted to a hospital. Faisal said, “He was admitted for a routine check-up. There’s no (need to) panic or (a) concerning issue. These are routine tests that are required to be done from time to time because of his age. He is doing fine.”
Meanwhile, before Deepika Padukone, several celebs have been doing their best to comfort and help people during these testing times. Just like last year, Sonu Sood’s Twitter page is full of people asking for help and the actor spreading smiles. Sood also shared his concerns and his heartbreak on seeing so many people suffering.
Alia Bhatt’s Instagram and Twitter have posts related to COVID-19 helpline numbers in different cities. Actors Vineet Kumar Singh, Bhumi Pednekar, Swara Bhasker and Taapsee Pannu, are also sharing SOS messages and helping others.
