Recently, he shared an adorable picture with his pets and took a stand against the controversial dog meat festival in Yulin city of Guangxi Zhuang, an autonomous region in mainland China. He put out a picture on Instagram wherein he raised his voice against the consumption of dog meat. In the picture, Aaryan is seen holding his two pet dogs in his arms as he smiles while looking into the camera.
“Har saal Dil Todte hain yeh Yulin Festival waale (every year these Yulin Festival people break my heart) #StopYulin #YulinKMKB,” he captioned his post.
Fans and celebrity followers including Anushka Sharma, and Bhumi Pednekar hit like in appreciation of his effort to stop the controversial festival. The post garnered more than four lakh likes within just an hour. In spite of the government’s drive to discourage consumption of wildlife and pets for meat due to health reasons, the controversial dog meat festival kicked off in China. According to the New York Post, the 10-day annual festival in the southwestern city of Yulin usually attracts thousands of visitors.
