Anupam Kher helps people fight Depression

The actor has released a video on YouTube encouraging people to overcome depression and not shy away from coming out in the open about the issue. 

"There is still a taboo associated with depression. People shy away from coming out in the open and discussing it. This even affects not just the victim but their near and dear one's too," Anupam said in a statement.

"A day before my father passed away, he gave me the message of living life to the fullest and that's what I hope to encourage people to do with this video," he added. \
