Rani Mukherjee’s noble deed
Mumbai: Rani Mukherjee recently helped a stray dog who missed its way and landed in a shooting spot from being get beaten. Now her acts are getting recognised by animal rights organisation People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India. The incident recently happened in the sets of ‘Aiyya’ for which Rani was shooting for her character. When everyone heard her screams scribes mistook that for altercations with the film makers as Rani was notoriously reputed for those acts.
However they were pleasantly surprised when she stopped the dog from getting harrassed by a few onlookers on the sets. For this, Rani will receive a Hero to Animals Award from PETA India. “This dog would have been terrified and suffered more abuse were it not for Rani’s compassionate and quick action,” said Sachin Bangera, PETA India manager of media and celebrity projects.
He further added, “We encourage everyone to stop and speak up for animals who are subjected to pain or suffering, because if you don’t, maybe no one else will.” Last recipients of PETA’s Hero to Animals Award include actors like Zarine Khan, for rescuing a cat from the street, and Cyrus Broacha, for refusing to perform a stunt that involved riding a bull.
