Many people would say that Trisha Krishnan has been blessed with the looks of an angel. But now, the actress is asking her legion of fans to be angels. That’s because Krishnan has shot a brand-new ad for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India in which she appears with a rescued dog named Bambi. As a puppy on the streets, Bambi was tormented by a mob of schoolboys before being rescued by a passing motorist. The ad reads, “Be an Angel: Adopt a Homeless Dog”, encouraging people to adopt a dog from an animal shelter or the streets. It was shot by ace photographer G Venket Ram. Trisha’s ad for PETA has been launched as a cover story in Galatta’s June 2011 issue.
Trisha tells the heart warming story of how she rescued her own dog, Cadbury. “I found him … in Hyderabad while was shooting for a film, we were just driving past, and we saw this small little puppy who was wounded … and he couldn’t walk, and he was lying in the rain. There was no looking back he came back home with me … and he is like the son I never had.”
Hope Trisha fans take this message seriously.
