To appreciate Bollywood actor Alia Bhatt’s work in support of an animal-friendly fashion industry and her advocacy for dogs and cats People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India has named the actress its 2021 Person of the Year.
Alia Bhatt is an ardent animal lover and always shares pictures with her pets. This year, Alia Bhatt worked with Phool, the company behind Fleather, which is a vegan leather made from discarded temple flowers. Her vegan kidswear line, Ed-a-Mamma, also won a 2021 PETA India fashion award for paving way to bring up kids’ love for animals and nature. She also starred in a pro-adoption PETA India campaign to help cats and dogs. She is always open for stronger animal protection laws.
“Alia Bhatt is not only helping to advance vegan fashion but also encouraging the next generation to be kind to animals. Alia doesn’t hesitate to speak up, whether she’s rallying her fans to adopt a dog or cat or calling for action on crimes against animals.” said PETA India Director of Celebrity and Public Relations Sachin Bangera.
