Shraddha Kapoor is enthralling the audience with her recent release, Saaho. Apart from this, she is championing to save the 'Aarey Forest,' which are the lungs of Mumbai. On Sunday morning, she participated in a protest with several people in attendance expressing their displeasure over their decision to chop 2700+ trees to build the metro. 

Being a public figure, Shraddha Kapoor feels the responsibility to create awareness about our society going to the grave. The actress joined protestors rallying to save 2700+ trees, which are in danger of being chopped down in Mumbai's Aarey Colony region. The trees could soon be felled to make way for Mumbai's Metro extension, which has got the indigenous, environmentally conscious populace up in arms.

Shraddha Kapoor often speaks up for issues that need major attention of the people. She also shared pictures from the rally on her social media and wrote: "Trying to do my bit. Went live on my insta sometime back to show you all how so many people have come together to stand up against this. 2700+ trees are slated to be chopped down for the Metro. Unacceptable. Shocking. As if we don’t have enough environmental issues already. As if Mumbai doesn’t have enough pollution already. And permission is granted to chop off our lungs. This HAS TO STOP [sic]"
