Do you?” It shows cats and dogs being scared of sound created by crackers. In the video, she made an appeal to avoid firecrackers. “Pooch, or patakha? Diwali is almost here and it is a beautiful festival of lights, not noise. And maybe you are fine with it but animals can’t bear it. So, this Diwali I am choosing pooch over patakha and I want you guys to do the same. All you have to do is send us a selfie with your little pooch and show us that you are willing to let go of the unnecessary noise pollution by ditching the patakha," said Alia. The initiative was a huge hit, as other celebrities, too, joined the initiative and helped her in spreading the awareness.
