Last week, Mumbai witnessed a severe cyclone which was a trail of destruction. The gusty winds also uprooted many trees in the city. On Tuesday, actor Kangana Ranaut took to Instagram and encouraged her fans and followers to grow more trees. She says, trees take decades to grow.
Sharing a picture of herself planting a tree, the actress mentioned, “Today I planted 20 trees, we only ask what I got, sometimes please ask what I gave back to this planet also !!! In recent cyclone Tauktae Mumbai lost more than 70 percent of its trees and Gujrat lost more than 50 thousands trees, these trees take decades to grow, how can we loose them every year like this, who is compensating for this loss? How are we preventing our cities from becoming concrete jungles? We must ask ourselves did we ask authorities the right questions? What are we giving back to our country?”
She further request government to plant more trees, “I am requesting concerned Mumbai @my_bmc and Gujrat @gujarattourism governments to plant Neem, Pipal and bargad trees wherever trees are uprooted… Above mentioned trees have medicinal qualities, not only they clean air nourish the soil they also emit extraordinary amount of oxygen….let’s save our cities, save our trees our planet that’s the only way to save ourselves.”
On the work front, Kangana Ranant will be seen in the most awaited film ‘Thalaivi’, biopic of the former minister of Tamil Nadu, J. Jayalalithaa. It is scheduled to be released on April 2020 in theatres but was postponed due to the surge in Covid-19 cases across the country. The actress also has Tejas and Dhaakad which are touted to be highly anticipated films.
