Inspired by Dalai Lama, Bollywood star Anushka Sharma pledges help for animals

DHARAMSHALA, MAY 2: Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma has pledged to build an animal shelter on the outskirts of Mumbai after being inspired by the words of the Tibetan leader the Dalai Lama.

Bollywood star Anushka Sharma, on turning 30, has announced that she will build an animal shelter for stranded animals.

Sharma said Dalai Lama’s words inspired her to work for the welfare of animals and “make the world a better place for them”. “I was deeply moved by something His Holiness the Dalai Lama said and his words have stayed with me since then. It incepted an idea deep within me and has propelled me to act on my thoughts of working for animals and trying to make the world a better place for them.

“His Holiness had said, ‘Life is as dear to a mute creature as it is to a man. Just as one wants happiness and fears pain, just as one wants to live and not die, so do other creatures.’ On my birthday, in my own little way, I’m starting something that will give our fellow living beings equal rights, equal care and equal love,” she said.

The actor who played a journalist in the Bollywood hit PK and a number of other notable films have urged people to take care of those species who are not as strong as human beings. “Think about how they live, how they are treated, think about their rights, think if they are treated fairly? And what’s worse, even if they aren’t being treated well, they have no means of doing anything about it and that’s where we have to come in as humans who stand up for all living beings. It is our responsibility. The whole purpose of being the strongest species is to look out for the welfare of all those, not so strong ones around us, so that we truly can give back to our great Mother Earth and live harmoniously,” she added.

Anushka will be seen next in Yash Raj Films’ Sui Dhaaga, opposite Varun Dhawan and Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Zero.
