Whether they're modelling, acting, or appearing in the UTV Bindass reality show The Khan Sisters, Gauahar and Nigaar Khan choose to
entertain the public. However, this choice is not offered to the thousands of animals used as attractions in zoos. That's why the two sisters have teamed up
with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India for an ad campaign in which they appear wearing zebra-striped bodysuits while caged in a
zebra-striped box above the words "Think Outside the Box: Boycott Cages, Boycott Zoos". The ad, which will be featured in the January 28 episode of The Khan
Sisters, was shot by ace photographer Gaurav C Bhat and styled by Hazel Paul.
"You don't learn anything from looking at a sad animal locked up in a zoo", says Gauahar. "If you want to learn about animals, view them in their natural
habitats - visit a nature preserve, or watch a video or read a magazine about them. Don't support the keeping of animals in unnatural confinement."
Adds Nigaar, "Like people, animals need freedom. Instead of spending money on breeding animals or capturing them in the wild, we should be spending money on
protecting the animals' natural habitats or on creating reserves and national parks where they can live in peace."
