Veena Malik and Dino Morea helping hand towards PETA…
BollywoodWorld.com, Pakistani actress Veena Malik is urging people to give up meat and turn vegetarian as she poses for the new PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) ad campaign.
“I am Veena Malik and I am a vegetarian,” Veena, who shot to fame with her stint in the fourth season of reality show “Bigg Boss”, proudly says in the ad.
The ad marks a worldwide Vegetarian Awareness Month – October.
“Going vegetarian is one of the smartest decisions I’ve ever made. I feel better, I’m healthier and I have the satisfaction of knowing that my food choices also help protect animals and the environment,” Veena said.
Veena joins the list of prominent actors, sportspersons and celebrities like Lara Dutta, Shahid Kapoor, Pankaj Advani, Anil Kumble, Amrita Rao, R. Madhavan, Murali Kartik, Rahul Sharma and Monica Dogra, who have starred in pro-vegetarian ads.
The 27-year-old actress is set to make her Bollywood debut with an item number in Riteish Deshmukh-Genelia D’Souza-starrer “Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya”.
Actor Dino Morea has posed with his rescued dog Slidey and is promoting the adoption of homeless dogs in a PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) campaign.
The model-turned-actor said Slidey was rescued by his parents when they were living in Bangalore after his younger brother saw the dog was being attacked by some children.
And the “Pyaar Impossible” actor feels if one has the right resources, one should not shy away from providing shelter to a homeless dog.
“I think adopting homeless animals, if one has the time, the space and has resources to actually care for them, I think is a wonderful idea,” the 35-year-old said in a statement.
An ad featuring the actor and the dog reads, “Compassion Is the Fashion. Adopt a Homeless Dog”. It was shot by photographer Joy Datta.
