Bollywood actor Imran Khan is the latest to shoot for an ad for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) urging people to adopt stray dogs in stead of buying pedigree pets.
The actor owns two pooches Kajri and Tony. He readily agreed when approached by PETA to do the ad and even shot with his adopted dog, Tony.
A source close to Imran told Mid day, "During the release of Jaane Tu... Yaa Jaane Na, Imran's dog Kajri had gone for a walk and came back with another dog who followed her home. The Khans soon discovered that it was actually abandoned by the owners. So Imran decided to adopt him."
Khan misses his pets the most when he's shooting abroad. About doing the ad, Imran told the tabloid, "It's what I believe and have been actually practising. Tony walked into our home just after the release of Jaane Tu and has been with us since."
