Alia Bhatt, Farhan Akhtar, Shraddha Kapoor and other B-town celebs express their anger at the felling of trees in Aarey Forest for Metro car shed


The cutting down of the Aarey Forest in Mumbai for a metro car shed within hours after the Bombay High Court dismissed all petitions against the move has angered Bollywood celebs to such an extent that they are venting out their anger against the establishment on social media. For the last couple of months, celebs like Shraddha Kapoor, Varun Dhawan, Farhan Akhtar and several others had been asking the government to not cut down the trees in the Aarey Forest but their petitions fell on deaf ears.

Today, Farhan, Shraddha, Alia Bhatt, Varun, Dia Mirza, Nimrat Kaur, Sidharth Malhotra and several others expressed their displeasure at the deforestation. Shraddha had even stood with the protesters with banners so that the felling of trees could be stopped but to no avail. Check out the tweets of the celebs below.

The petition was against the felling of 2,700 trees in Mumbai’s Aarey Colony to make the metro car shed. However, the people are divided about this as many feel that Metro is the need of the hour since the local trains are way too crowded and hazardous for the common man and the city’s bursting population needs the Metro for the commute.

Amitabh Bachchan and Akshay Kumar had supported the project.
