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.

“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.

The actor will soon be honoured with the Outstanding Achievement in Indian Cinema Award at the 19th edition of the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Awards to be held in Bangkok later this month.
