“What has been absolutely amazing in the last few years is the incredible behavioural change that actors who have campaigned for whether it was the beach plastic campaign, or whenever we have spoken about clean air… more and more artists especially the younger generation has been campaigning to bring better awareness,” the Dia added.
The 38-year-old actor pointed out that she carries a metal water bottle along with her, which has also influenced the film fraternity. She stated to all the paparazzi that since she has started carrying the metal bottle, she has noticed some effects leading to actresses ditching the single-use plastics, and have seen them carrying their bottles.” This has also appreciated the writers, directors and actors, to weave the narrative of nature into the crafts and storytelling and the screen as well,” she added.
“This IIFA is special as it is being held in Madhya Pradesh. It is an extraordinary state. It`s the first state I witnessed my first wild tiger in. Whether it`s the Gondh art or the tribal culture, in fact, we were talking about reducing pollution and we gave the tribal ladies cooking equipment that they didn`t have to burn coal and wood and they made the most amazing hand made rotis.”
