Bollywood stars John Abraham, Madhuri Dixit, Shilpa Shetty and Sunny Leone joined People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India for its 20th anniversary. A virtual party was organised and awards were given to those who have been championing animal rights. 

“Happy anniversary to PETA India, an organisation that I’ve wholeheartedly supported for the longest time now,” said  Shilpa in a video, in which she talks about how the organisation asked “people to boycott cruel animal circuses or even urging officials to uphold the ban on bulls in performances”.

John has helped PETA India get an e-commerce portal to stop the trade of live animals on its platform. 

He said: “I must congratulate PETA India on getting Quikr to discontinue the trading of live dogs. Congratulations Quikr, and thank you for doing this. I hope others follow suit, especially when we have the crisis of homeless dogs in our country. And thank you, PETA India, for voicing your opinion and making your voice heard when you see an animal suffering. I always stand up for animals. That is my life’s mission.”

Madhuri recalled joining the organisation a few years ago to help elephants.

“From there on it was the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Two years ago, my family adopted Carmelo, a cherished dog, from PETA India. Since then, I urge everyone I see to adopt a dog or a cat from the shelter or from the street,” she said.

Sunny, an active supporter of the organisation, said: “(D)onate everything you can. Even if it’s a little bit, it will make a huge difference.”

Animal rescuer Aditi Parameshwaran, who has saved the lives of over 100 animals around Mumbai, was feted with an Outstanding Service to Animals Award. Vegan food company EVO Foods bagged the award for Best Innovation in Food Award.

As the suspense surrounding Salman Khan’s attendance at the much-hyped wedding of Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal grows with every passing minute, the superstar’s family is expected to attend the event. Katrina is said to be close to Khan’s sisters, Arpita and Alvira.

According to sources close to the family, the two sisters will attend the wedding along with their husbands — Arpita’s husband and ‘Antim’ star Ayush Sharma and actor-director Atul Agnihotri (Alvira’s husband).

Katrina is said to have also wanted Salman’s parents to attend the ceremony and shower their blessings to the soon-to-be-wed couple, but they won’t be able to attend the event because of health concerns.

Salman’s Da-bangg concert tour’s dates coincide with Vicky and Katrina’s wedding celebrations. The actor is unlikely therefore to attend the function. Salman has flown to Riyadh with his head of security, Shera, who incidentally is monitoring the ‘KatVic’ wedding security at the Six Senses Fort Barwara in Sawai Madhopur, Rajasthan.

After launching the new action-packed poster of Jr NTR on Monday, the makers of ‘RRR’ revealed yet another impressive poster of Ram Charan.

The brand new posters unveiled by the makers are being lauded by fans, as they amplify the existing hype around the pan-India project.

Ram Charan, who plays Alluri Sitarama Raju in S.S. Rajamouli’s directorial ‘RRR’, is seen in one of the fiercest avatars in the poster released by the team. Showcasing his ripped physique and six-pack abs, the makers hint at the kind of role Ram Charan is portraying in the movie.

The two posters, which were launched on the same day, have set the action tone for the film through the characters portrayed by Ram Charan and Jr NTR.

The makers, who are leaving no stone unturned to promote this pan-Indian movie, have succeeded in creating anticipation further for the audience wanting more.

‘RRR’ is a fictional story about two Indian revolutionaries, Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem, who fought against the British Raj and Nizam of Hyderabad.

Though the duo do not belong to the same time period, Rajamouli has conveyed that he tried to take the cinematic liberty to create a beautiful, soul-stirring story around the two.

Alia Bhatt, Ajay Devgn, Shriya Saran, and others appear in important roles in ‘RRR’. The movie is all set to hit the screens across the world, on January 7.
