In 2017, Vicks India blew everybody’s mind by releasing a powerful ad film featuring the beautiful bond between a transgender mother and her daughter. After over a year now, the brand has once again done something extremely applauding. Its latest advert under the campaign #TouchOfCare captures the story of a young girl Nisha who has a rare skin disorder called Ichthyosis. In a memoir, she tells people how the unconditional love and support from her parents changed the course of her life.

Just like the previous edition, this one too has been conceptualized by Publicis Singapore. It was directed by Anand Gandhi with Offroad Films Production House. The girl in the lead is Nisha Lobo who plays her own role on the reel. The characters of her mother and father are played by Ratnabali Bhattacharjee and Dilip Shankar respectively.
