In recognition of leaders who, through sustained effort, have done extraordinary work to shape the future of their industries and the world at large, TIME recently revealed the winners of the first-ever TIME100 Impact Awards.
Deepika Padukone received the TIME100 Impact Award
Among these leaders, including scientists and CEOs, artists and activists, pop stars and politicians, is world-renowned actor, producer and philanthropist Deepika Padukone whose recognition was twofold, for movies and mental health advocacy.
Taking to social media, she shared, “I think it’s a great start to Monday morning…#Gratitude”
With that, Deepika joined names like Sarah Al Amiri, UAE Minister of State for Advanced Technology; Ellie Goulding, singer-songwriter and activist; Huda Kattan, entrepreneur and founder, Huda Beauty; and will.i.am, musician and entrepreneur.
Over the years, Deepika Padukone has delivered some of the finest performances in Indian cinema, many of which have received critical acclaim and are among the highest-grossing films in the industry. In 2015, she opened up about her battle with depression, and since then mental health advocacy has become a big part of her.
That year, she also launched the LiveLoveLaugh Foundation, which works to de-stigmatize mental health struggles and raise awareness.
As the TIME article says, Padukone’s advocacy work has helped her find balance in her life and a new definition of success. While initially striving to be the queen of Bollywood, she now prioritizes her own mental peace, working at her own pace and on her own terms. When Padukone now thinks of success, she thinks of one thing: “living as honest and authentic a life as possible.”
