Anupam Kher urges people to fight depression

Anupam Kher says he hopes to bring a change in society by doing his bit to ensure Depression isn't considered taboo. The actor has released a video encouraging people to overcome depression, and not shy away from coming out in the open about the condition. "There is still a taboo associated with Depression. People shy away from coming out in the open and discussing it. This affects, not just the victim, but their near and dear ones too," Kher 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," he added. The actor will soon be honoured with the Outstanding Achievement in Indian Cinema Award at the 19th edition of the International Indian Film Academy Awards, to be held in Bangkok this month.
