New Delhi: Boxing champion Vijender Singh has featured in a new ad urging people to boycott animal circuses. The ad, for animal rights organisation People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India.
In the ad, shot by ace photographer Anil Chawla, Vijender is seen showing off his knuckles and posing next to the tagline – "Knock out cruelty: Boycott animal circuses".
"Animals cherish their freedom every bit as much as we do, but circuses deny them their freedom and every other form of natural expression.
