Randeep Hooda is an avid nature and wildlife lover, and an advocate and follower of sustainable living. The actor, who is also the UN ambassador for UN Convention on Migratory Species, is not only a spokesperson for environmental issues, but has also made significant contributions for the cause.
From the past few days, there has been a lot of information circulating on social media around forest fires in Uttarakhand, and many have even compared it with forest fires in Australia and Amazon region.
Randeep called out the unverified information doing rounds and tweeted, “Forest fires are a natural phenomenon that rejuvenates the forest & they happen every year..as per my research, this year #forestfires have been relatively low in #Uttarakhand so far..pls don’t compare them to Australia & the Amazon & spread panic #PrayForUttarakhand #FakeNews”.
He also compared the forest fire statistics of 2019 and 2020 to reiterate the fact.
On the work front, Randeep recently made his Hollywood debut with Extraction for which he got immense praise and will be seen next in Radhe.
