Bollywood star and ISL franchise NorthEast United FC co-owner John Abraham today said he will start a CSR campaign to save the world famous one-horned rhinoceros in Assam from January next year.
"I am seriously looking at projects to help save rhinos in Assam. It is in back of my mind. From January, I will start a CSR activity and campaign for rhinos," Abraham said at a press conference here.
The 41-year-old actor, however, did not share details on what kind of campaigns or activities he will carry out to protect the animals from poachers or any other threat.
"I am an animal activist. I am involved with save tiger project. I am also doing a documentary on tigers. So I am very much interested to do something for the rhinos and I will surely take it up," Abraham said.
He said as NEUFC is currently busy with playing ISL matches back-to-back, so it will be difficult to start anything related to the rhino campaign immediately, but it will be begin from January next year once the first season of the tournament gets over.
