Randeep Hooda is not only a tremendous actor but is also an environmentalist at heart. He has often come out in support of the cause and never shied away from doing his bit to save the planet.
Recently, the newly formed government in Maharashtra lead by Uddhav Thackeray shot down the proposal to construct a Human dam in Chandrapur district. The CM clearly stated that the irrigation projects cannot hamper wildlife corridors.
The dam was to be constructed 3.5km land from Tadoba-Andhari Tiger Reserve. It would have resulted in the diversion of 1.950-hectare dense forest and the felling of 1.50 lakh trees.
Randeep Hooda is all praise for this move as he said, “To rise above vote bank politics and look at a brighter future for our planet, which we tend to overlook for short term gains, is to be applauded no end. I’m so happy that Uddhavji has taken a stand and lived up to our expectations. I hope all leaders can take inspiration from this and save the people from the environmental disaster we seem to be running towards. This should set a precedent keeping environment above politics and party lines. It is also important to revisit previously built projects, executed without much emphasis on the environment and correct them with mitigation measures.”
On the work front, Randeep would be soon seen in Imtiaz Ali’s Love Aaj Kal. Later in the year, Randeep will play the role of an anti-hero in Salman Khan starrer Radhe. This movie is slated for an Eid release. Randeep has been training hard for this role and even applauded the makers for making sure that the set was completely plastic-free.
