Ac­tor Karuna Pandey (right) be­lieves in con­tribut­ing to­wards the so­ci­ety in her lit­tle ways. A self-con­fessed an­i­mal lover, Karuna, along with her hus­band, ac­tor-di­rec­tor Rutwij Vaidya, makes sure that they take care of strays in the lo­cal­ity and out­side.

“Both me and my hus­band are an­i­mal lovers. We have three pets, two dogs — Romeo, Bar­bie and one cat — Maw. We also take care of stray dogs and cats and pro­vide them with food and med­i­ca­tion,” says Karuna.

The ac­tor also plans to take her pets on a hol­i­day. “We want to go for a hol­i­day to a place where there are pet friendly re­sorts. My pets love green­ery and beaches so we will plan ac­cord­ingly,” adds the 46-year-old ac­tor.

Be­sides her love for an­i­mals, Karuna also sup­ports the cause that works for home­less women who can­not af­ford treat­ment dur­ing preg­nancy. They pro­vide them with food and ed­u­cate them on birth con­trol pro­ce­dures.

“I sup­port a cause where we pro­vide med­i­ca­tion, food to street women who can­not af­ford it. As of now, I work alone but my hus­band has been very sup­port­ive and I hope to open an NGO in fu­ture,” says Karuna.
