Sharing a picture of the dog, Anushka wrote on Instagram, “The inhumanity of this act is just unbelievable. This is the time for our community to step up and find a way to help get justice to a soul that can’t stand up for himself. If there is any way one can reach out to help, this is the time. Please swipe left for all the information.”

 

Meanwhile, John Abraham shared an update about the incident and called for animal lovers to stage a protest in front of the Worli building, Turf View, where a resident instructed the building manager to beat up the dog and later, also animal lovers.

On the work front, Sonam was last seen in Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga alongside father Anil Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao. She is currently awaiting the release of The Zoya Factor that will see her star opposite Dulquer Salman. Anushka, on the other hand, is yet to announce a film after her last box office debale -Zero - that also starred Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif. However, her production house is working on a few web shows.
