Anushka Sharma, who brought in her 30th birthday with husband Virat Kohli on Tuesday, took the occasion to announce a project close to her heart. The actress, who is currently accompanying Virat on the IPL circuit, said on Twitter that she would soon be starting an animal shelter outside the city.
Her post reads, “I’m building an animal shelter just outside Mumbai — a home for those animals that are stranded, left to fend for themselves and have to brave harsh conditions. A home where they will be cared for, loved, protected and nurtured. This has been my calling for years now and my dream is finally coming true. I will seek your time, support and advice to make this home a place that looks after living beings with utmost care and compassion — all in due course of time.”
The actress has also requested people to take care of animals. “It is our responsibility. The whole purpose of being the strongest species is to look out for the welfare of all those not so strong around us, so that we truly can give back to our great Mother Earth and live harmoniously,” she said.
Virat, too, posted a picture of him and Anushka on Twitter with the caption, “Happy birthday, my love. The most positive and honest person I know. Love you.”
