Actress Shraddha Kapoor has taken a stand in favour of animals for the festive season of Diwali.
Kapoor has a pet dog Shylo, and the actress has expressed concern for animals on various occasions.
With Diwali close, Kapoor, in a tweet, appealed to fans not to light firecrackers, for the sake of animals.
She shared a video saying: "Diwali is coming — the festival of lights... not of noise and air pollution. Help keep the air clean and be sensitive to the animals on the streets. This is that time of the year when Diwali is just around the corner and I just wanted to say that please don't buy firecrackers and don't burst (sic) firecrackers. Not only does it cause a lot of pollution but it also troubles all the animals on the street."

The actress is working on the trilingual Saaho with Baahubali (2015) star Prabhas. Kapoor recently returned to Mumbai after wrapping the first schedule of the film in Hyderabad.
