Deepika Padukone Though, most celebs are too conscious of their public image, but not this leggy lass. After struggling from depression and anxiety, Deepika went public with her story without giving a damn what it might do to her image as a leading Bollywood actress. In an interaction with the media addressing the issue, she said, "I woke up one morning, just feeling empty. I woke up feeling directionless. I'd have to lock myself up in a bathroom and cry because there's just so many people looking at you all the time." Well, admitting it takes courage.

Anushka Sharma Last ICC Cricket World Cup was a tough time for Anushka Sharma. As unfair as it was, the actress was blamed, ridiculed, and trolled for her beau Virat Kohli's bad performance in the game. However, she had just one message for her haters.

Alia Bhatt The Dear Zindagi star became the butt of all jokes after her appearance at Koffee With Karan, a couple of years ago. But man, she handled it all like a boss and she just didn't care about it enough to bring her down. Her mantra was: "I am the first person to laugh at myself. I always say that I rather be stupid than pretend to be intelligent." Good one Alia!

Sonakshi Sinha This woman doesn't give a damn about what her trolls have to say. But, she sure knows how to stand her ground. And she is in no mood to let body-shamers get to her. Sonakshi made it a point to let the haters know that no one in the world has the right to tell people how they should look. "Men are given the freedom to look however they want to. Nobody calls an actor with a big bottom. I have been targetted on more than one occasion, and on more body parts than one. It’s important to rise over and above all the negativity and not let it affect you." Yes, Sona we completely agree.

Kareena Kapoor Khan After Kareena Kapoor made the news of her pregnancy public; a lot of unasked advice came her way. Most of which bordered on sexism. Not paying heed to the ridiculous demands that she should stay at home, the actress made no bones about letting the world know she can handle her personal and professional life with much ease, and that she would always continue to work. "How can anyone decide on my behalf whether I am supposed to feel depressed or if I can step out before 45 days? Every pregnancy and every mother’s journey with her child during those nine months and afterwards is different," she retorted.
