Kolkata: Bollywood actress Rani Mukherjee Friday lent a helping hand to her actress aunt Debasree Roy to save stray dogs in the city.

The Bollywood beauty was in town for the official launch of the website of a non-profit organisation run by Debasree.

"My aunt (Debasree Roy) used to get ridiculed for loving dogs. I do support her cause," Rani said.

"You all should support her in her endeavour," Rani told mediapersons after the launch at a city five-star hotel.

Debasree Roy Foundation is primarily dedicated to promoting the cause of birds and animals suffering from lack of care and needless suffering.
