Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor rode a cycle on Tuesday to spread awareness about the benefits of a pollution free environment.
The 'Green Planet Bicycle Riders Association', a voluntary organisation promoting awareness of environment protection and global warming, sponsored the event.
Kapoor joined other cyclists, thereby suggesting that others cycle at least for short-distances to help save energy and improve their health.
"Our universe is going through global warming. Petroleum and other fuels are causing pollution, so whatever we can do to protect our health, our planet and to save greenery should be done. I believe cycling is a great mode of transportation. I completely encourage it. It not only helps in maintaining good health but also saves our planet," said Kapoor.
Kapoor was shooting for his forthcoming film Rajneeti in the city.
Film director Prakash Jha also took a cycle ride.
"Our universe is facing the brunt of energy consumption. So I believe this first initiative to promote greenery via cycling is a great effort. If most of the people would walk or cycle or use no-fuel consumption vehicle, it would be great help in saving our planet," said Jha.
