MUMBAI: Bollywood diva Bhumi Pednekar strongly belives that natural calamities such as the recent super cyclone like Amphan act as a warning for the humanity to ponder upon the fact that we have already put our planet through enough.
In a recent interview, Bhumi opened up regarding the destruction which was caused by 'Amphan' the super cyclone in parts of Kolkata and Odisha. She said, "I have been seeing videos from Kolkata and Odisha for the last two days and it is heartbreaking. It honestly is very scary! It went on for so many hours! I have seen blog posts with videos of the cyclone and it is so very unnerving. Houses have been damaged, huge trees have been uprooted, it is a major loss to humankind and to animals."
She continued, "I think it''s high time that humanity understands what we have put our planet through. If you see in the last five years, the frequency of cyclones, the strength of cyclonic winds and typhoons are only going to keep increasing. Our cities are drying up, the earth is heating up at a crazy speed."
As per her Instagram profile, Pednekar identifies herself as a 'Climate Warrior'. She has constantly worked towards spreading awareness in the world regarding the importance of nature preservation and the adverse effects of climate change.
She explained more about the climate change phenomenon while mentioning, "Today, already the world is going through a major refugee crisis. In the next few years, we are going to have refugees because of climatic change. Millions and millions of people will be displaced irrespective of how rich or poor they are. It doesn't matter, in front of nature''s wrath we all are one. I really hope humanity wakes up. The planet is our home and we have to learn to coexist with every single species that exist on earth. Why do human beings feel their invincible? We share our planet with millions of other species but we feel haq sirf hamara hai (only we have a right on the planet) and that is ridiculous."
The actress has taken it to herself as she feels it's her responsibility to spread the word and will address the issue in whatever way she can. When being asked whether she's like to be a part of projects which focus on depicting the importance of preserving nature, the actress replied, "Absolutely! I will do whatever it takes to spread the message and bring about a change. This is something I am very passionate about. This is something I really believe in and it gives me sleepless nights."
