Peering seductively over her shoulder next to the caption “Ink, Not Mink” and wearing nothing but her many tattoos, Bigg Boss 6 inmate, fashion designer and celebrity hair stylist Sapna Bhavnani appears in a brand-new ad for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India. The ad also says, “Be Comfortable in Your Own Skin, and Let Animals Keep Theirs. Say No to Fur and Leather.”
“After I educated myself and saw a few films on the cruelty and what happens to animals, I realised that it just wasn’t worth it. I take a very strong stance on leather,” Bhavnani explains in an exclusive interview with PETA. ”Pleather is a great substitute for leather. And if you don’t know what it is, I just say go to your local shop and ask for that substitute because it is available.”
This isn’t the first time that Bhavnani has helped PETA help animals. Two years ago, she appeared in a PETA ad holding a pair of scissors and posing next to the caption, “Cut Hair, Not Frogs. Choose to Refuse to Dissect Animals”.
