New Delhi: Animal-rights activist and Union Minister Maneka Gandhi has extended support to Akshay Kumar-starrer ‘Entertainment’ for using the dog in the film in a friendly way. Gandhi also hosted a premiere of the film here on Thursday which was attended by film’s crew and members of her organisation People for Animals (PFA).
“The film has been endorsed by us. A dog has been used in the film but it has been used in a respectful manner. I am happy to have this event as our annual fundraiser,” Gandhi, who also attended the film’s trailer launch couple of months ago in Mumbai, told reporters here.
“After the law of not portraying animals in cruel manner has been passed, filmmakers are using them in a good way,” she said.
The film is a comic take on a dog and human relationship. The film’s story is about a golden retriever, who inherits all the wealth from his owner while his son, played by Akshay, is left penniless.
Akshay said he would be happy if anyone ends up adopting a dog after watching this film.
