In the video, Our 'Pari' could be seen picking up plastic waste and face masks amongst other waste items from the ocean.
The 33-year-old actor expressed her disappointment and pointed the waste at the camera, shaking her head as she collected a lot of waste including a can and some pieces of clothing from the ocean.
The caption in the video read, "About 14 million tons of plastic end up in the ocean every year. By the year 2020, the amount of plastic in the ocean is expected to quadruple. This could cause the extinction of thousands of species of marine life. Some of these species include sea turtles, dolphins, and seals. Luckily, divers can help to save the ocean and these species through Dive Against Debris. Since the program's launch, 90,000 visitors to the ocean have removed 2 million pieces of garbage from the water. I'm happy to have done my part in helping to save the ocean."
