Actress Bhumi Pednekar says climate change, as a concept, is still not considered a real issue.

On World Environment Day, which is coming up on June 5, Bhumi looks to bring more awareness on the subject.

“Climate change, as a concept, is still not considered a real issue today by a lot of people. There are such varied and grave climatic issues that are happening across the world, which people are not even realising — like increase of famines, forest fires, droughts, floods, melting ice caps, sea levels increasing, food and crop getting destroyed, heat waves across countries and continents,” Bhumi said.

She wants every citizen of the country to become a climate warrior and do their bit for the cause.

“Climate Warrior is an initiative that is very close to my heart. It aims to focus on awareness building and engaging with the youth across India so that we become more conscious of our climate and environment, to encourage passionate advocacy for its conservation and protection. It makes us think towards making environment-friendly life choices,” she said.

The actress says the campaign endeavours to get Bollywood personalities to share “one wish they have for the earth”.

“For World Environment Day, Climate Warrior is starting a small campaign — One Wish For The Earth. At this time and in this current scenario, there are many issues that the world is facing as an impact of the climate crisis. What our campaign endeavours to do is get thought leaders from my industry to tell the world what is the ‘one wish they have for the earth’. I can’t wait to share their thoughts to make the Earth a better place. Let’s pledge for climate justice and let’s unite to save our planet,” she said.

Bollywood star Ranveer Singh, who was most recently seen in cricket drama ’83’, refuses to be put in a box creatively.

The ‘Bajirao Mastani’ actor likes to be limitless and explore his craft in his constant pursuit for artistic excellence.

Ranveer reveals, “My constant endeavour is such that you cannot put me in a box. You can’t define me. I don’t wish to be defined because I feel defining something by its fundamental nature would be limiting me. As a creative person I would like to believe that I have no limits. That I the possibilities within my craft are limitless, that they be infinite.”

The actor adds that there’s no end to how many characters he could play for the screen, “There is no end to how much I can explore and how many different people I can become. I hope I continue that and if I keep doing the same thing, then I am stagnating. I should probably take a sabbatical, gather more life experiences, put more different characters into my jholi and then come back to work.”

On the work front, he has a string of upcoming releases including YRF’s ‘Jayeshbhai Jordaar’, filmmaker Shankar’s remake of his blockbuster ‘Anniyan’, Rohit Shetty’s ‘Cirkus’ and Karan Johar’s ‘Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahan’.
