Actress Shraddha Kapoor has become the strongest voice for the voiceless as she time and again, makes sure to show her support towards the animals. She recently, shared a special video while bringing their suffering to the limelight- straight from the zoo to the lockdown, in perspective. The actress, in collaboration with an international animal rights organisation made sure to spread awareness and urge everyone to be more compassionate, empathetic and sensitive towards their causes.

A lot of us are feeling anxious and “caged” during this lockdown. Imagine being taken away from your family, your home and being locked up for your entire life? . Animals have feelings just like us. They get depressed when separated from their natural habitats and loved ones. Why should we believe that we have the right to take away their freedom? . When @shazamorani asked me to be a part of this cause, I immediately jumped on board because I realized I could lend my voice to those who don’t have one. Animals can’t speak for them selves, we need to become their voice. I would truly hope that all of you do the same.✨💜 . . “Until one loves an animal, a part of ones soul remains unawakened.” – Anatole France. #LockdownZoos @petaindia @worldforallanimaladoptions @samaajscope @sachinsbangera @tweeeked @yodacreates @kiara.sougrakpam @aditya_star_being @salvageaudiocollective @viraajsaxena @rhnr @varun_lalwani
