Tamil Actress is a popular face on the big screen but her acting skill is not
the only admirable trait she possesses. The actress is also an animal rights
activist and has been associated with People for Ethical Treatment of Animals
(PETA) through which she advocates and promotes the adoption of stray animals.
She has spoken out against experimentation and product testing on animals in
laboratories. She wrote a
letter to the government requesting for action to be
undertaken to release 70 beagles, who had allegedly been imported from China as
‘pets’, but most probably were to be used for some experiments. She faced
immense backlash on social media for taking a stand against Jallikattu, a
traditional bull taming event in Tamil Nadu.
