Actor Aditya Roy Kapur, who is riding high on success of his recently film ‘Malang’ has extended his support to Pragya Kapoor’s tree plantation drive. He said that Mumbai need more trees and green cover and everybody should come forward and do their bit for a noble cause.
Aditya Roy Kapur was interacting with the media at the launch of NGO named Ek Saath – The Earth Foundation along with actor-producer Pragya Kapoor on Saturday in Mumbai.
Pragya Kapoor’s newly founded NGO Ek Saath – The Earth Foundation organized tree plantation drive and Aditya Roy Kapur joined the initiative, talking about it, Aditya said, “I feel really happy to be here. I know she (Pragya Kapoor) is passionate not only about this but so many other issues. I think this is her first step towards this cause. I have grown up in Mumbai. So, you always want to contribute in some way or the other to your city and this is need of the hour. We need more trees and green cover. It just brings about a feeling of community that we sometimes lack in big cities. You need to start from somewhere and I think this is really nice step toward it.”
Talking about tree plantation drive, Pragya said, “I am grateful that Aditya and you (media) came here to support this cause. It’s been a dream for quite some time now to do something and give back to the society. It has started just naturally. I didn’t plan that I will start an NGO or something. I am so happy that many people are coming forward to help out and I hope we will create some difference.”
She added, “We don’t have a lot of things to do in Mumbai. So, if you go for a beach clean-up or tree-plantation drives then it is something good which you are doing for your society. So, we should call our friends and do it as a fun group activity thing.”
When asked Aditya what advice he would like to give to people about tree plantation, he said, “It is not as tough as it looks. We often think that when we will do it and how we will do it but it’s about getting together with group of friends. Once you do it, you will realize that there is not much which goes into it. It just takes you and your friends to wake up on one Sunday morning, find the right place, then go and do it. I know you will feel good after doing it as you are contributing in some way so, you have to break that myth that you have to spend your whole day to something like this. It could be about couple of hours after having morning breakfast.”
At the end of 21 days, Malang has accumulated a total of 58.04 crores and would add another 2-2.50 crores during 4th week.
Talking about success of ‘Malang’, Aditya said, “I have got really positive feedback for it. I am feeling really good about that. I am thankful that the film is being appreciated. But more than that, I feel Mumbai need more trees because Goa has many trees where we shot for ‘Malang’.”
Aditya Roy Kapoor next will be seen onscreen in Anurag Basu’s ‘Ludo’ and Mahesh Bhatt’s ‘Sadak 2’.
