Ananya Panday Joins Bhumi Pednekar’s ‘One Wish For The Earth’ Campaign
Now Ananya Panday “Pati Patni Aur Woh” co-star has joined Bhumi Pednekar’s campaign and expressed her ‘one wish’. She shared a video on her Instagram account.
In the video, Ananya says, “If I had one wish for earth it would be to save endangered species which are on the verge of extinction. Our planet is blessed to have so many diverse species and forms of lives. Unfortunately, as a result of the human race’s unending exploitation, some of the most beautiful species of animal have already gotten extinct or are on the verge of extinction. Why? Because we have threatened the habitat. Planet Earth is as much theirs as it is ours. Deforestation, pollution, overpopulation and animal cruelty are a few of the major reasons for it, we must all learn to co-exist and be sensitive with our actions towards them. As we all grew up, we were all taught lessons of co-existence, kindness and compassion in school. But putting it into execution is in our hands. So let’s not forget about our fellow creatures, whom we share our home with and make our planet a better place with them to live on. I’m a Climate Warrior, are you?” [sic].
