'Lekar Hum Deewana Dil' stars supports 'Adopt a Dog and Be a Hero campaign'

New Delhi, June 30 (ANI): The lead pair of upcoming romantic film 'Lekar Hum Deewana Dil', Armaan Jain and Deeksha Seth was spotted encouraging dog adoption while promoting their film in Mumbai.

Taking a cue from their film which shows the lead actress adopting a stray puppy, the makers of the film initiated a 'Adopt a Dog, Be a Hero Campaign', to raise awareness about animal welfare.

"Actually even in the movie my character Karishma adopts a dog and that dog who is Jerry in the movie is a very integral part and wherever Dino and Karishma go jerry goes with them. So because we felt so strongly towards it and we just felt that this is something we should spread and people should do it because we have a lot of strays in our country and they are so cute. Why would we not want to take one of these homes," said Seth.

Speaking on the occasion lead actor and a dog lover Armaan Jain said, "Animals aren't animals they are human beings.For me dogs are human beings all animals are human beings and they are as emotional as us. Initially in the film, I don't love the dog my character I personally love dogs but eventually I take a liking towards it and in the film we lose it and its very emotional for us in the film."

Directed by Arif Ali, the film is slated for a 4th July release. (ANI)
