The recent death of a pregnant elephant in a small district in Kerala has once again started a debate about climate change and activism. Following the trend, Dia Mirza invited actress Bhumi Pednekar on her Instagram chat show called Down to Earth with Dee. The two celebrities shared stories about the climate and urged fans to care about the environment.
Dia also said that Bhumi Pednekar is a relentless climate warrior. She added saying, "What I love about Bhumi is not only her craft but her humanity and the choices she makes to build environmental awareness. Along with being a wonderful artiste, she is a relentless climate warrior."
Dia Mirza herself is a UN Environment Goodwill Ambassador. Bhumi refereed to the same and said that Mirza is a real life inspiration to her. "I've been brought up with a lot of compassion and just general awareness since I was very little," Bhumi shared, adding that what she missed out on in Mumbai she enjoyed heartily in her grandparents' Jaipur farmhouse. My grandmother had hundreds of trees and everything was homegrown. I've spent a lot of time up close with nature. I realised how important it is to coexist with nature, " she added.
Bhumi Pednekar also spoke about the need of the hour amid the Coronavirus pandemic. She said, "We have to defeat coronavirus and everyone has to join hands. Leave the habit of spitting. We have to save the country. Currently, our country is under the threat of corona and the fatal disease spreads even by spitting. We all came together to get associated with the toilet campaign and pledged to make the country clean. Similarly, let's pledge to make the country corona free, by avoiding to spit here and there."
