Anushka’s paw-sitive approach towards animals
Anushka Sharma recently showcased her love for animals through her online awareness campaign, PAWsitive.
The campaign not only brought to notice the adverse effects that bursting crackers have on animals, but it also got a lot of support from her friends from Bollywood.
A source close to her says, “Anushka wants to sensitise people about such issues.” The actor has got the campaign registered and wants to take the campaign to another level.
“Anushka’s month-long Diwali campaign, which urged against bursting loud crackers, was supported by Virat Kohli, Alia Bhatt, Priyanka Chopra, Anil Kapoor, Sidharth Malhotra and Sonali Bendre Behl. Many animal lovers from outside the industry also came forward to express their solidarity. Facts like the decibel levels that affect animals and the smoke that affects the vision of birds were also posted online,” says the source.
Anushka wants to work towards the welfare of animals on a regular basis. “She plans to expand the campaign to other spaces as well. She wants to highlight the ways in which human beings negatively treat animals round the year, and wants to bring about a change,” says the source.
