In the same interview Hrithik Roshan talked about depression,
''Mental health is important. We all know that, but when it comes
down to talking about matters like depression or OCD or anxiety, I
feel people find it difficult to seek help even if it is from a
close friend, because of a wrong presumption that it is weakness or
the person's fault or that it makes them less in some form. This
stigma needs to be destroyed.''

The famous actor further added, ''I have never suffered clinical depression. But we all know what depression feels like, we all have been there or will experience it at some point in our life. There is no escaping the dark side of life. But I have seen it from extremely close quarters and it pains me to see that people will suffer in silence when there are simple ways to treat it. And help is around. They just need to reach out. It is not their fault.''
''This is a topic where I would invite more people to get involved since it is relevant to each one of us. If by my presence, the message reaches out to a few more people, I will be happy,'' he added.
