Humans have taken the environment for granted since a really long time. In fact, people are waking up now and re realising that climate change is real! Our global crisis is always a hot topic and people have started taking really big initiatives to save the planet such as cleaning up the oceans or planting trees. When influencers indulge in these initiatives and send out a message, they are often trolled or disregarded because people cannot connect with them. But Jackie Shroff has always been a celebrity who knows how to make an impact.
After taking part in a tree plantation drive, Jackie Shroff addressed the media and this video has gone viral! In this video, Jackie Shroff can be seen expressing his views on Climate change and why tree plantation is important.
In the video, Shroff says, "Jhaad laga ke maine koi upkar nahin kiya Hindustan pe na duniye pe. Sab ka kaam hai lagane ka, lagao. Nahin lagaane ka hai, toh maro ja ke. Wahi hone wala hai; apun ko apne bachche ke bachche ka sochne ka hai. Apun ka dada kabar mein hai. Baaki bhi toh aayenge apne pilley; apna Tiger baba ka bhi chota Tiger aayega; aap logon ka aayega. Sab Tiger ghar mein hai... Toh samjha karo bhidu, unke liye apne ko chhodne ka jhaand paan, khana sahi, paani sahi, hawa sahi.. baaki logon ke dimaag mein zeher waise hi kam ho jayega... That's what I am saying. Mere ko bolne ko nahin aata Bhidu!"
