October 4 is celebrated as World Animal Day and our celebrities, every year, come forward to spread awareness about the safety of animals and urge people to love and respect the feelings of animals as they are innocent. On this occasion, B-Town celebrity and animal enthusiast Sidharth Malhotra stands as among the first ones to share that adopting animals, showing them the utmost care and giving them the rightful space that belongs to them is the best way we can celebrate this day.
Taking up to his Instagram account, the actor put up a video of him petting an elephant and urged his followers to do their bit for the animals. ‘Show you care’, he wrote along with the caption.
Cricketer Irfan Pathan also took to his social media and posted a snap of himself sitting on a horse.
