The Garam Masala and Kushti actress warns that horses and city traffic are a dangerous mix.
Nargise Bagheri stripped down Lady Godiva-style for a leading role in a stunning new ad for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India, hoping to draw attention to the plight of horses who are used to pull carts that bear heavy loads or people seeking “joyrides”. In the ad, Bagheri – covered only by her long hair – poses on a dark “horse” next to the words “Don’t Get Taken for a Ride, Horse-Drawn Carts Are Cruel”. By appearing in the ad, Bagheri seeks to warn potential tonga and victoria passengers that these joyrides are joyless for the horses and potentially dangerous for both riders and horses.
“Horse carts are cruel and outdated and should be relegated to the history books”, says Bagheri. “In the city, the mix of horses and traffic can make for a lethal combination for horses and passengers.”
Well, we have heard of the Black Beauty, but this is taking beauty to a new height.
