International wrestler Sangram Singh, who shot into limelight after participating in the reality show Bigg Boss, has been roped in by noted environmentalist and Union minister Maneka Gandhi’s People For Animals (PFA) organisation to promote cow preservation throughout the country.

Sangram Singh, whose real name is Sanjeet Singh, hails from Madina village of Rohtak district.

The wrestler, who has also made various small-screen appearances in TV serials like 100 Percent and De Dhana Dhan, met Gandhi on Friday and pledged to use his brand appeal for the “noble cause”.

“The cow is a symbol of the earth - the nourisher, the ever-giving and undemanding provider. Cow represents life and its sustenance,” Singh said while talking to the Hindustan Times.

The wrestler-cum-actor, who is busy shooting for his upcoming movie - Yuva, said he has been associated with PFA and the Sanjay Gandhi Animal Organisation for a long time now and feels that it is his duty to serve the cause.

“I will not miss any single opportunity to promote the noble cause in online world as well as in real world including Bollywood… by asking everyone from high-profile to middle class people to serve it,” Singh added.

While talking to HT, the wrestler also shared his experience during a recent visit to his hometown. “I was shocked to see youth enjoying junk food ...their liking for cow and buffalo milk has completely changed,” he said.
