Our environment is in such a poor state that it simply can't be ignored anymore. Bollywood celebrities are recognizing this urgent need to revive the environment, out of their awareness that disaster is looming. Kangana Ranaut declared support to a massive river revitalization project called Cauvery Calling, by donating a whopping amount to it. Other celebrities like Shahrukh Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, and Anupam Kher have now followed suit.
A few days ago, Kangana Ranaut went all out to support Cauvery Calling project initiated by the Isha Foundation. The project aims to revitalize river Cauvery by planting 242 crore trees in the river basin in the next 12 years and address farmer distress in the region.
Kangana made a huge statement by donating Rs. 42 lakh, contributing to 1 Lakh tree saplings. Now, SRK, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, and veteran actor Anupam Kher have also joined the movement. Shah Rukh and Anupam made videos highlighting the problem and solution for river Cauvery and urged everyone to support Cauvery Calling.
Anupam tweeted -
When @SadhguruJV launched Rally for Rivers, I was privileged to be a part of that landmark campaign. 2 yrs later, it is time 4 action with Cauvery Calling.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui not only made a video but also created a fundraising page with 1 Lakh trees as the goal, matching Kangana's contribution. He tweeted -
21 Indian cities are to run out of groundwater! This spells disaster for the nation. Growing up my association with river is intimate. I pledge to #FreeIndiaofwatercrisis.— Nawazuddin Siddiqui (@Nawazuddin_S) September 5, 2019

Others such as Dia Mirza, Juhi Chawla, Kajal Aggarwal, and Tamannaah Bhatia have also made similar videos, on the importance of acting now to protect our environment, urging fans to contribute to the planting of trees around Cauvery.
Our farmers feed 1+ billion people but they are barely eating properly. #CauveryCalling can improve farmers' condition dramatically. @tamannaahspeaks, @KanganaTeam & I will make it happen. What about you?— Kajal Aggarwal (@MsKajalAggarwal) September 5, 2019
