Bollywood actress Sonakshi Sinha has taken part in a new campaign for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India which encourages fans to ditch leather and wear vegan clothes. For the campaign, the Lootera actress is seen holding a bag dripping with ‘blood’, as she draws attention to over 1.4 billion cows, dogs, cats, sheep and goats and millions of other animals that are slaughtered for leather each year.
“Cows and buffaloes are intelligent, emotional animals that mourn the loss and separation of loved ones, so I choose vegan leather and other compassionate materials when shopping,” Sinha says.
“Through this campaign with PETA India, I hope to inspire more people to keep fashion fun, not macabre, by wearing vegan.”
Sonakshi has previously joined other stars in calling for stronger animal welfare laws, starred in a pro-adoption campaign for PETA India and wrote a letter on behalf of the group calling for the transfer of an abused elephant near Jaipur.
Work-wise, Sonakshi Sinha made her Bollywood debut with the 2010 film Dabangg, in which she starred alongside Salman Khan as Rajjo. Since then she has starred in several hits like Rowdy Rathore, Son Of Sardaar, Dabangg 2, Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty, Lootera, Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Dobaara, R…Rajkumar, Action Jackson, Kalank, Mission Mangal , Dabangg 3 and Bhuj: Pride of India.
The Bollywood actress is now gearing up for her upcoming movie Ittefaq and the same stars Sidharth Malhotra in the key role. Besides Ittefaq, we will see her in Kakuda and Double XL.
