Not only that, he also revealed how his ex-girlfriend, Deepika Padukone is an inspiration to him as she is also working on mental health awareness.

In an interview with The Times Of India, Sidhartha Mallya shared his thoughts about the work that his ex-girlfriend, Deepika Padukone is doing. He said, ''I think it’s amazing the work that she and everybody else do in India. There are just not enough people who talk about mental health. The fact that people like her use their platforms to promote mental health is very inspiring, and I think that the more people we can get to talk about mental health--whether it's writing books, celebs or just grassroots level or teachers talking about it in school to children or families talking about it--better for everyone."

In the same interview, Sidhartha also revealed how the charges levied on his father, Vijay Mallya had broken his heart. In his words, ''I think that when you read anything on anyone you care about--a parent, friend, or sibling--and not even read about it, as humans, we don't like to see people we care about, suffering. Whether he is being accused or not accused is inconsequential. The fact that you know someone is suffering, does hurt."
