Actors Arjun Kapoor and Varun Dhawan are in Delhi right now, shooting for their respective films, Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar and October. The actors are experiencing difficulties in shooting due to the severe #DelhiSmog situation that has engulfed the country’s capital city in a suffocating, dangerous envelope. Both have tweeting about the situation, giving people in and around Delhi to be more careful about what to expect.
Through his slew of tweets, Arjun has been issuing advise to those traveling on the expressways to and fro from Delhi. Vehicles have piled up on the expressway, making it difficult to drive and dangerous to commute. Earlier today the actor had also posted a video of a similar situation from last year. And it seems, history is all set to repeat itself this year as well. Scared and shaken by the situation, the actor said, “What’s happening in Delhi is dangerous in more ways than one can imagine…I’m filming here as I type this and I’m fearing things aren’t gonna really get any better. It’s disconcerting to see the city suffocating. We need to put politics and personal agendas aside stopping the blame game & come together to find a solution otherwise all of us are gonna be affected in more ways than we realize (sic).”
He further hoped that people who are assigned the job of finding long term solutions actively seek and put them into action soon. “As citizens we shouldn’t feel paranoid about the air we breathe. Our capital is suffering & we are all to be blamed but now is the time to right our wrongs,” he said.
Varun on the other hand posted a small clip, giving us a glimpse of the scene on the Delhi expressway. In the video, even he urged all to stop the blame game and Rethink. He harped on the fact how it is important to keep our cities clean and recycle waste instead of burning it as it is one of the major aspects that adds to the pollution in our environment.
Earlier today, the actor had also posted a selfie where he said, “I have clicked this selfie to show you guys what actual smog looks like. I don’t want to preach, I am equally to blame for this mess as most of the citizens of our great country, but now instead of blaming each other and the government let’s change. It’s time we go green.” We hope these messages from these young actors and youth icons reach far and wide.
