Deepika Padukone in New Nike Advert, Says Sport Helped Her Overcome Depression

Watch Deepika Padukone in Nike’s new advert that shows top Indian athletes and sportswomen training together on city streets.

Guess which sport Deepika Padukone is playing in the video?

Yes, its Badminton (she’s the daughter of ace Indian shuttler Prakash Padukone after all).

Ms Padukone, leading Bollywood actress, says sports helped her overcome depression in her younger days.

Sport has taught me how to survive! It has taught me how to fight! It has made me unstoppable – Deepika

While the video looks good, it looks very American though. If the focus was on Indian athletes, the video should have had a dash of ‘Indian-ness’ to it. I guess they tried to do it by having Deepika in the video.
