Mumbai: Looking smouldering hot in a leopard print bodysuit, Jian Khan is tied up in chains, holding a placard which gives a clear message: ‘Wild Animals Belong in the Wild. Not In Zoos.’
Bollywood actress Jiah Khan has been roped in a brand new ad for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), India.
Shot in London by ace photog Karl Grant, the advertisement aims to spread the word that animals who are locked up in zoos suffer and that their true nature can’t possibly be appreciated when they are kept in captivity.
Talking about the campaign, Jiah said, “Actors choose to entertain, but animals locked away in zoos are given no choice. All beings treasure their freedom above all else, and that applies to animals too.”
A recent investigation by PETA on zoos across India revealed the horrific conditions in which wild animals are kept.
Apparently, this is not the first time when Jiah has teamed up with PETA to help animals. In 2009, Jiah had posed as a wounded bird wrapped in string to make a plea to ban glass- coated manja thread used to fly kites. The ad carried the caption: ‘Cut the Glass- Coated Manja, Not Birds’ Wings.’
