Shraddha Kapoor who starred in Chhichhore alongside Sushant Singh Rajput in a recent interview opened up about why she joined the #SaveAarey campaign. She said, “A lot of people tell me that it is really good that you are part of this campaign, taking out time from your busy schedule and going out there. My retort is it’s nothing special. We have to do this. I don’t think it’s a big deal because it should be the most normal thing any of us should do.”
She also further stated, “Every single day, I feel like I should have done more. I don’t feel like there will ever be a point where anybody can feel satisfied when it comes to making a change for the environment. We all know it is the need of the hour to get involved. We have a voice so, we have to use for the right reasons. I personally feel there is so much I want to do, whether it is environment or human rights or women’s rights or animal’s rights, it’s just never enough, but we all should try to do our bit.”
A lot of citizens and celebrities alike have come forward to protest after Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation approved cutting 2,700 trees in Aarey Colony. Shraddha on Sunday was seen standing in the heavy rain with a board in one hand that read “#SaveAarey” while in the other she held an umbrella. She at an event, where she was named rand ambassador of the cosmetic and skin-care brand, was also seen expressing her solidarity with the movement.
Several other celebrities like Lata Mangeshkar, John Abraham, Randeep Hooda, Raveena Tandon and Dia Mirza have also expressed their concern and unhappiness over the BMC decision.
