Anushka Sharma supports cracker-free Diwali


Actress Anushka Sharma has urged everyone to celebrate the forthcoming festival of Diwali without noise and firecrackers for the sake of animals.

Ahead of Diwali next month, the “Dil Dhadakne Do” star will launch a campaign “Pawsitive” through Facebook and Twitter to encourage people to reduce the use of crackers, especially in residential areas.

She tweeted, “Compassion & empathy towards animals make our world a better place.”

“Animals are our best friends. They make me laugh and I share a personal bond with them. Their welfare is one cause that’s close to my heart and I will keep taking up initiatives that makes us care for them too. When someone bursts fire crackers during Diwali, they don’t think of how it affects animals or birds,” Anushka said in a statement.

“With ‘Pawsitive’, I hope I can inspire some of us to care about them, and avoid making a lot of noise,” she added.

The upcoming movie of Anushka directorial by Karan will feature other actors also like Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor.

“Ae Dil Hai Mushkil” is co-produced by Fox Star India and Dharma Productions.

The film, that is releasing on 3 June 2016, will be shot across the globe including locations like Delhi, New York, London and Paris.
