With the issue of climate change and the Copenhagen summit grabbing headlines these days, Bollywood is also doing its bit in spreading the green word. While Rahul Bose is in Copenhagen representing Oxfam at the global climate talks, Bollywood hottie Neha Dhupia recently did a refreshing calendar shoot as a part of Franchise India's Go Green initiative. Shot by ace photographer Jatin Kampani, the photographs symbolize different elements of planet earth - air, water, soil and the flora.
The actress is all for people contributing to the green cause. "I think the importance of protecting our environment is something that each one of us understands and that the only way to promote this cause is by getting involved. This calendar is one such endeavour that I believe will go a long way in making people more aware of the need to get involved in environment protection," she says.
Talking about the shoot, the actress says, "When I get an opportunity to do my bit, in my own way, I make sure I give it my best. Everyone involved in the making of this calendar was truly passionate about creating something spectacular, and the passion shows."
Serious as she is about the issue, Neha adds, "A calendar is an excellent, light hearted and an entertaining way to inspire people to nurture nature and take care of the environment." Neha also showers praise on the photographer - "The calendar has turned out to be a really exotic, truly creative and imaginative piece of work by Jatin Kampani."
Finally a word for the company that planned it all, "Gaurav Marya and Sachin Marya of Franchise India Holdings Ltd, have given me this opportunity to support an initiative that is so close to my heart. Hopefully, all of you will enjoy this calendar and remember the message behind it - Go Green." We can only wish that more and more people from Bollywood do their bit for the environment.
