Bollywood Stars Promote Animal Rights

Actor Rahul Khanna is the latest Bollywood star to work with PETA India and in his ad campaign, he’s protesting the condition of elephants in captivity.

An elephant requires almost 200 kgs of food – and more than 150 litres of water – every day, yet many people who own elephants openly admit that they cannot afford to feed the animals this much food. Elephants’ feet are not equipped to walk on tarred roads, yet elephants living in captivity are often forced to spend the entire day – and much of the night – walking on tarred roads. Elephants in cities cause traffic obstructions and pose a threat to the general public. Mahouts* use elephants for begging and have even used elephants to intimidate people in order to get money from them.

*Mahout – person who drives an elephant

Other stars who have signed up to work with PETA include Aishwarya Rai, who’s helping raise awareness about protecting black rhinoceros, and Shilpa Shetty, who is discouraging people from attending circuses. She also has a very interesting photo for her campaign on the PETA India website, by the way.
