What’s Exotic Skin you ask, we were confused as well, until we realized it was on her latest advertisement she did! Model-turned-actress Dipannita Sharma has appeared in the latest advertisement of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). Through the ad the actress would be highlighting the horror of using reptile skins for exotic fashion. The advertisement features Sharma wearing a bodysuit that resembles a snake-skin and lying on a tree trunk in a jungle setting, while the tag line reads:
“Exotic animals belong in the wild, not in your wardrobe”.
Talking about supporting PETA and the advertisement in which she features, Sharma said that snakes, crocodiles and other reptiles were being skinned alive for fashion.
“I have never, ever used exotic skin in my life. I have never understood the style quotient of carrying a clutch for which an animal has had to go through so much torture”, Sharma, who hails from Assam, said in a release issued by PETA on Monday.
The actress further added,
“I don’t think it takes away from my fashion quotient or style quotient because I am carrying faux (artificial) leather and something for which an animal has not gone through torture.” Sharma’s latest film PIZZA is set to release this Friday.
Good job, Sharma for standing up to these fashion rights!
