Bollywood’s actress Deepika Padukone recently unveiled her prestigious ‘Statue of Purpose’ at Madame Tussauds London. The Padmaavat actress has been an active voice in creating awareness about mental health and therefore has dedicated her statue to her foundation ‘Live Laugh Love’ and believes her statue too will communicate the same.

Here’s what people have to say about Deepika:
Expressing her thoughts, Deepika Padukone said, “As a little girl, I was a very curious kid, for me, the purpose is something that is very important. However, big or small, whatever I am doing in my life, purpose and why we do what we do is very important to me. After I got a call from Madame Tussauds, I thought what is the purpose of this, why are we doing this, or what is it that my fans will remember me for, remember my figure for, what is it that I would like to leave behind, and the cause of mental health is very close to my heart, it is something that I am extremely passionate about. I said that’s it, I would like for my fans when they see my figure I hope it reminds them of someone who did something for the cause of mental illness, who worked towards creating awareness and destigmatizing mental illness. I hope that it gives people a sense of upliftment and a sense of hope. I hope that message comes through.”
Deepika was accompanied by her husband Ranveer Singh, parents Prakash and Ujjala Padukone and in-laws Jagjit and Anju Bhavnani at the event.
