Ac­tor Karuna Pandey (right), who was re­cently seen in film­maker Sooraj Bar­jatiya’s multi-star­rer, is ex­tremely fond of dogs. “I think dogs make for lovely pets. They get emo­tion­ally at­tached to peo­ple who treat them well. I take care of all the street dogs around my house,” says Karuna, who played Neil Nitin Mukesh’s mother in Bar­jatiya’s film.

The ac­tor, who rose to fame af­ter work­ing in tele­vi­sion shows such as Woh Rehne Waali Mehlon Ki and Ya­han Main Ghar Ghar Kheli, her pas­sion for an­i­mals goes back to her child­hood days.

“I know some peo­ple pam­per an­i­mals as per their con­ve­nience, but I don’t mind giv­ing food to dogs even on my shoot­ing sets. As hu­mans, this is the least we can do,” she says.

“When­ever I get time be­tween my shoots, in­stead of rest­ing, I pre­fer go­ing out and play­ing with dogs and giv­ing them food,” she adds.
