Environmentalist Much!

Not too long ago, Shraddha Kapoor was at the forefront of a protest against the construction of a metro car shed in Mumbai’s Aarey Colony. She passionately advocated for environmental conservation, garnering support from both her fans and environmentalists. Fast forward to today, and she is the owner of a diesel-powered Lamborghini worth a staggering INR 4.04 crores. This sudden shift in her stance has raised many eyebrows.

However, the online community didn’t take kindly to this transformation. The actress faced strong criticism for her perceived hypocrisy. Internet users were quick to point out that her Lamborghini, like many luxury sports cars, is notorious for its fuel consumption. It is a factor that goes against her past environmental advocacy. According to ARAI ratings, it offers a fuel efficiency of merely 7 kilometers per liter of diesel.

In the congested and traffic-heavy streets of Mumbai, the car’s real-world fuel efficiency is estimated to drop significantly. It would hover around 3 to 4 kilometers per liter. This low fuel efficiency, combined with her previous ownership of other less eco-friendly vehicles, intensified the criticism she faced.

What makes this backlash even more pronounced is Shraddha Kapoor’s past environmental activism. In October 2019, she actively participated in protests against tree-cutting activities in Aarey Colony.

She advocated for the preservation of the green space and rallying under the slogan “Save Aarey”. She even sported a “Save Aarey” T-shirt and brandished protest posters.

Contrasting Stance

Unsurprisingly, the online community was quick to draw a contrast between her previous environmental activism and her recent high-end car purchase. Netizens accused her of being a page 3 environmentalist, someone who supports environmental causes primarily to improve their public image and career prospects.

The situation in Aarey Colony was complex, with the Mumbai Metro project aiming to alleviate the city’s traffic congestion and reduce carbon emissions. The project had allocated only a small portion of Aarey’s vast land for the construction of a metro car shed, with a significant portion set aside for greenery. Despite the controversy, construction resumed, emphasizing the project’s potential environmental benefits.

Doglapan 101!

Shraddha Kapoor’s transition from an environmental activist to a luxury car owner has certainly raised questions about her commitment to the causes she once championed. It serves as a reminder that public figures, including Bollywood stars, face intense scrutiny for their actions and statements. In this case, the actress has found herself in the midst of a social media storm, prompting a reevaluation of her environmental advocacy and the values she publicly espouses.

The public’s reaction to Shraddha Kapoor’s Lamborghini purchase underscores the importance of authenticity in supporting environmental causes.

Their actions carry weight, and their fans and followers look to them for inspiration and guidance on important issues. Celebrities like Shraddha Kapoor, appear to be inconsistent in their principles. Do we still trust their sense of wavered righteousness?!
