Actor Priyanka Chopra has raised concern and disappointment on the air pollution in Delhi, saying how it is not possible to shoot under such conditions. The actor posted a selfie while wearing an anti-pollution mask on Instagram along with a note.
As the actor is shooting for her next project ‘The White Tiger’ in Delhi, she expressed concern for Delhiites and especially those who are homeless. “It’s so hard to shoot here right now that I can’t even imagine what it must be like to live here under these conditions,” the actor captioned the picture. Adding how blessed she is to have “air purifiers” and “masks”, “Pray for the homeless. Be safe everyone.”
Delhi is witnessing a dip in air quality across NCR, showing air quality in the ‘severe’ category. The capital and its adjoining areas have been covered in a thick blanket of smog due to rising pollution from past few weeks.
The situation is such that public health emergency has also been issued by EPCA in the wake of the decreasing air quality.
