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. [sic]"
Shraddha Kapoor further added, "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]"
On the professional front, Shraddha Kapoor and Prabhas' Saaho (Hindi version) earned Rs. 24 crore at the box office on its first day (Friday). Apart from this, the actress has Nitesh Tiwari's Chhichhore set for its release on September 6. The film also stars Sushant Singh Rajput, Varun Sharma, and a few others.
