They are known for burning up dance floors from Denmark to Dubai with Indo-pop gems like Rock tha Party and Sexy Momma, but Bombay Rockers are as passionate about helping animals as they are about making music.
Copenhagen-based musicians Navtej “Naf” Singh Rehal and Thomas Sardorf recently took time out of their busy touring schedule to sit down for an exclusive interview with the folks at petaDishoom.com, PETA India’s youth portal.
Proving their hearts are as big as their talent, Naf and Thomas were eager to talk about why protecting animals is so important to them as they continued working hard on their new upcoming album Out of Control.
The pair also generously donated several autographed CDs and T-shirts which will be given away to the lucky winners of an online contest at petaDishoom.com.
The duo supports PETA’s efforts to improve the treatment of chickens killed for KFC restaurants. “I think they should completely shut it down”, says Naf, a vegetarian. “My message for the KFC president is to treat his chickens better and for people who eat at KFC – come on, guys. Cut it out”.
Thomas and Naf’s main message to their fans is to use their power as consumers to help animals. “The reason why animals are killed for fur, elephants for ivory, is because there is a market for it”, says Naf. Adds Thomas, “We all live on this Earth, and there is no reason to treat animals worse than you treat human beings”.
