John plays a 'winged angel' for birds!

John plays a 'winged angel' for birds!Wearing huge angel wings which span nearly four meters and standing next to the tagline "Be an Angel for Birds: Don't Cage Them", model-turned actor and staunch animal advocate John Abraham stars in a brand-new ad for petaDishoom, the youth arm of People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India. The ad is a still-shot taken from a video from Pakistani pop sensation Strings' long-awaited release "Koi Aanay Wala Hai", in which John Abraham plays a winged angel.

The new ad is titled, "Be an Angel for Birds", but petaDishoom wants Abraham and Strings' legions of fans to come up with their own original titles.

Famous for their top-selling singles "Yeh Hai Meri Kahaani"- the song from the hit movie ZINDA - and "Dhaani" & "Sar Key Yeh Pahar", Strings' composer guitarist Bilal Maqsood and lead singer Faisal Kapadia took time out of their busy schedule to do an exclusive interview with petaDishoom.

This isn't the first time that Abraham has teamed up with PETA to speak up for animals. He signed PETA's petition to ban elephants from urban areas, wrote to the Goan government urging it to take action to stop the cruel and illegal backyard slaughter of pigs, and recently co-hosted PETA's eighth birthday bash. In 2005, Abraham shot another ad calling for birds to be free in which he appeared shirtless, holding an empty cage as several birds flew skyward to their freedom.

"When John Abraham speaks up for animals, young people across India listen", says PETA's Simran Kodesia. "His close association with PETA means that the message of compassion for birds and all other animals - that they should never be abused or robbed of their precious freedom - will reach more people than ever before."
