Kangana Ranaut said, “The rivers, which are our lifeline, are ceasing to exist. The drought in Chennai became a global issue. Leonardo Di Caprio was concerned about it even though he is in the US. I will die of shame if I have no concern about what is happening in my country.”

The actress now plans to donate a large part of her earnings to Isha Foundation and continue holding awareness programmes to save nature.

Kangana Ranaut said, “Each of us needs to donate only Rs 42 for a sapling every year, and the volunteers of Isha Foundation will plant them. Our population stands at 1.3 billion. Imagine the green belt we can have if each of us donates for a sapling! My sister Rangoli said that she will support this cause so that her son, Prithvi, grows up in a greener world. My appeal to everybody is to think of the next generation and come forward to help this cause. I will dedicate a large part of my earnings to the cause."

She also slammed the cosmetics and fashion industry for polluting the environment by burning clothes. She also showed concern about the use of animal skins for manufacturing fashion products.

"I think it is high time that the environment has been exploited. We all should come forward to save the environment and act upon it", said the actress.
