Even the most seasoned star cannot predict which films are going to fare well at the box office and how the audience at large will receive their performance. Sonakshi Sinha has had a fair few hits, but she is hardly a veteran — yet this is one performance she knows will pull at heartstrings and receive praise from the get-go. Starting with kudos from us. We’re talking about Sonakshi’s inspiring role in a film for PeTA (that’s People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, for those of you who don’t already know). Starring as herself, with a canine companion named Bambi playing co-star, Sonakshi’s minute-long film urges everyone to adopt homeless dogs and to sterilise them in order to avoid adding to the millions of strays trying to survive on the streets. “All around the country, homeless dogs and cats starve or are injured in fights, hit by cars or abused by cruel people,” says Sonakshi, her incredibly expressive eyes saying more than her words. “There aren’t enough good homes for them all. The single most important thing that we can do to save animals from all the suffering that their overpopulation causes is to sterilise them.” Even more thought provoking is the fact that this is not just an act for Sonakshi. The actress has been rescuing animals — including her late dog, Nancy (her devoted companion for 14 years) — since her college days.
