Watch: Priyanka Chopra voices first-ever life-sized robot ‘elephant’ for PETA



School children will now have the chance to learn about and get up close and personal with an ex-captive elephant, thanks to PETA US' life-size mechanical model named Ellie, who's voiced by Bollywood celebrity Priyanka Chopra who plays the lead in the recently premiered American show Quantico. Ellie is starting a school tour that will take her all over the US, Europe, and even India. She'll talk to young people about her separation from her mother as a baby, the physical punishment she endured in the circus, and, finally, her happy life at a sanctuary after her rescue.


"Elephants are truly magnificent creatures, who desperately need our help and protection. Ellie and I are teaching kids that elephants belong in the wild with their families and that they suffer greatly in captivity, in which they're kept chained, forced to learn tricks, and deprived of all the things that make them happy, like family and freedom", says Chopra. "I couldn't be more proud to join PETA in bringing Ellie's story to life for children everywhere, with the hope of instilling the idea of compassion and kindness for living creatures of all kinds."
