Actress Shraddha Kapoor has taken a stand favouring the animals in the festive season of Diwali.
Shraddha has a pet dog Shylo, and the actress has always expressed her concern for animals on various occasions.
With Diwali inching closer, Shraddha took to Twitter to appeal to her fans to not burst firecrackers, for the sake of animals.
She shared a video saying: "Diwali is coming - the festival of lights... not of noise and air pollution. Help keep the air clean and be sensitive to the animals on the streets."
The actress added: "This is that time of the year when Diwali is just around the corner and I just wanted to say that please don't buy fire crackers and don't burst fire crackers.
"Not only does it cause a lot of pollution but it also troubles all the animals on the streets."
Shraddha further urged her fans to have a safe Diwali by spending time with family as she wished her fans.
"Instead, spend Diwai with your family, with your loved ones eat amazing food, eat sweets and don't burst crackers. Happy Diwali."
On the work front, the actress is currently working on the trilingual "Saaho" with Prabhas. Shraddha has recently returned to Mumbai after wrapping the first schedule of the film in Hyderabad.
