Earlier, Ranaut has stated that she will donate a portion of her earnings for the cause, and today she made a  donation if 42 Lakhs to the Isha Foundation, which will help plant 1 lakh saplings across Cauvery basin and help the Farmers to introduce agroforestry in an attempt to replenish the river ecosystem. Kangana also urged everybody present at the press conference to donate as per their capabilities, for planting trees because saving Cauvery river is the need of the hour.

During the media interaction, she also said, “When I hear things about Amazon being on fire and Aarey trees being cut, I really get panicked but I don’t want everyone to get panic attack about that. Instead, we should do our bit and donate to plant trees so that we can solve an existing problem.”

Further, in the conversation, she added, “We cannot expect under-privileged people to donate. The people who can donate at least 2 saplings on behalf of them. This will bring a huge change in our environment.”

“Being a part of this initiative will also set a module for the coming generations and our generation will set an example that we stood up to save our environment.” She adds.
