Every minute counts, be a #ClimateWarrior. @bhumipednekar,” Amitabh Bachchan tweeted on Tuesday tagging the actress, whose One Wish For The Earth campaign seeks to fight for the environment.

A lot of damage has been done and climate change is a grave reality that all of us are facing. Today the one wish that I have is that we all work towards rebuilding mother nature by the simplest act of planting trees. I consider this to be one of the most basic and efficient deeds that we can all excercise individually and also urge others to do so. So guys, let us all do our bit to heal and rebuild the only planet we have. So join me and become a climate warrior. “
“I am eternally grateful and thankful to you @akshaykumar sir, for sharing your #OneWishForTheEarth! Thank you for putting out such a strong message 🙂 I pray and hope we all become aware and work towards a greener future. #ClimateWarrior,” wrote Bhumi Pednekar for her “Toilet: Ek Prem Katha” co-star.
