Yami Gautam Latest Photoshoot on Rampwalk
Yami Gautam, who is busy promoting her upcoming film ‘Batti Gul Meter Chaalu’ these days, took some time off from her busy schedule to spread awareness on mental wellness. The actress recently spoke at IIT Powai, Mumbai on the importance of staying healthy – both physically and mentally, and what it actually means to focus on wholesome fitness.
As someone who works towards being both physically and mentally fit, Yami spoke on the trials and tribulations people go through, why asking for help is key, how each industry has problems and why one must have an outlet of some form to help reduce the pressure. She also discussed why India needs to embrace the word ‘Therapy’ and allow people to go without fear to a therapist if need be. The students welcomed Yami by singing “Paani Da”, the popular song from her debut film, ‘Vicky Donor’ and the evening flowed by with a volley of questions on mental wellness. One of the students, in particular, caught everyone’s attention by asking her about Bollywood’s skewed representation of depressed people. He asked her why are more films not being made on depression when it’s such a pressing issue in the country and when they are why are those characters shown in a certain stereotypical way.
