She took to Twitter and shared pictures of the letter sent by PETA India. The letter read, “Dear Ms Bhatt, We are immensely grateful to you for being the first director in the country to pledge never to use animals in films, on behalf of Fish Eye Network. This commitment is sure to be an inspiration for filmmakers around the world and will thus spare animals distress and injury on and off set. We are delighted to present you with PETA India’s Compassionate Film Production Company Award as a gesture of our appreciation for your kindness to animals. Congratulations!”
Pooja wrote along with the pictures, “Thank you for the honour @PetaIndia Delighted to be leading from the front on this one & pledging to never use animals in any films or content I create. Will rely on computer graphics if a film/show of mine ever has an animal written into it. Urge more filmmakers to join in 🙏.” Have a look:
