Senior Actress Voices Against Mumbai Deforestation


Senior actress Shabana Azmi who is known to be a vocal activist, and is never one to shy away from any cause, has got a new one on her plate. The multiple Award Winning actress is expressing her support to raise awareness about deforestation of 1500 tress in Mumbai.

It is being reported that the Maharashtra government is planning to cut down a part of the Aarey forest to build a Metro Car Shed. It would involve cutting down a big chunk of wood that is home to many species of birds and other animal habitats.

The Aarey forest is the lung forest for Mumbai, and if the voice is not raised, 3500 trees would be cut, tweeted Shabana Azmi and gave the followers a number to give miss call which would suggest the high officials look for an alternative.
