Sonu Sood plays a cop in Bbuddah Hoga Terra Baap, but he is taking a more serious role as a wildlife ambassador for PETA.
Recently he was in Toronto, Canada for the IIFA awards, and has recently written to the Canadian Government to stop the Canadian Seal Hunt that takes place every year. Prior to this, he has also shot a campaign promoting vegetarianism for PETA India.
Many of the seals killed in the Canadian Seal Hunt are only a few weeks old. This slaughter is the largest massacre of marine mammals in the world. World leaders such as US President Barack Obama and His Holiness The Dalai Lama have denounced the massacre. Sonu becomes one of the first Indians to endorse the cause and add his name to this growing list of celebrities speaking up against this massacre. “It is a very cruel sport and should be stopped. I support the efforts to conserve wildlife and am happy to do my bit and contribute,” says Sonu.
