The world has been facing a lot of turmoil. In the last couple of months humans have experienced both the good and the bad side of mother earth. While people were forced to stay indoors due to coronavirus and its serious impact on human life, we saw mother nature restore to a great extent with animals roaming around freely on the streets to marine life coming to the bay. This World Environment day, Dangal TV actors share what movies have taught them about respecting nature and how they pledge to protect the environment now than ever before. Read on…
Ankit Arora from Alif Laila
This lockdown has taught us one very important thing that we should not and must not take the Earth and the environment for granted. Bollywood has made many movies based on environment and recently I have watched ‘KADVI HAWA’. The film talks about existing social and environmental issues and the crisis of farmers due to dramatic climate change. Hats off to Sanjay Mishra sir who performed brilliantly. It leaves you with plenty to think about for our nature and it's high time to do our bit for the environment.
Madhura Naik from Alif Laila
I would like to urge everyone to watch ‘Before the Flood’, which is a documentary where Hollywood actor meets with scientists and activists to discuss dangers of climate change and solutions towards it. In today’s ever-changing world, we must give extra attention to our environment and its other living creatures and help them grow and flourish. Because this was an ecosystem built by god and once the balance is disrupted there won’t be any looking back. So please let’s work towards striking that balance. Happy world environment day!
Tarun Khanna from Devi Aadi Parashakti
When we talk about nature, the first thing that comes to my mind is mountains. And the movie according to me that showed these mountains beautifully is ‘Vertical Limit’. I think it was shot on K2 - a mountain located on the China- Pakistan border which is very difficult to climb. The message they put out through the movie was that one should not mess with nature. Also, ‘Roja’ is a South-Indian movie which was later dubbed in Hindi. It captured the water bodies really well. I would love to see more films made on this subject.
Rahul Sharma from Pyar Ki Luka Chuppi
There are many documentaries on environment like 'Our Planet', 'Plastic Ocean', 'History 101'. These documentaries are very impactful. They make us realize our mistake and how the nature is giving us back in the form of floods, cyclones, earthquakes etc. These documentaries also talk about how plastic is affecting our oceans. I am doing my bit to cut down on the use of plastic, I urge you to do the same.This World Environment Day, Dangal TV actors take inspiration from the messages conveyed in movies and pledge to protect mother nature!
