Ranbir Kapoor recently shot for Kaun Banega Crorepati as a contestant and on the show, spoke about the importance of saving a precious natural resource like water. Ranbir is also Pepsi’s brand ambassador and decided to donate his prize money to the Community Water Initiatives by Pepsi’s parent company, PepsiCo India.
About his decision to donate the prize money to PepsiCo’s Community Water initiatives, he said, “PepsiCo is a large Food and Beverage Company and you may think they use a lot of water. But in reality they give back more water than they use, which means they are Water Positive. They have many community programmes for water conservation and as a part of the PepsiCo family, I thought why not support the same. I am proud to make a small contribution towards it”.
He also added, “Water is a resource that we all take for granted. We should be more conscious of the importance of water and do our bit to conserve it. I try and save water wherever I can. Simple things make a lot of difference like using a mug for shaving and a bucket to take a bath instead of a running shower. As individuals we cannot save more water than we use but can save enough to feel positive. I feel water positive and invite all my fans to do as well. Do your bit by saving water where you can.”
The Kaun Banega Crorepati episode featuring Ranbir Kapoor will air tonight, Thursday, September 15, 2011 at 8:30pm. Can’t wait to watch it. xoxo
