Bhumi Pednekar: I crave for versatility as an actorMumbai, Oct 3 (IANS) Bhumi Pednekar, who has taken up the cause of climate conservation to raise awareness among fellow Indians, says she wants to use her voice to bring about positive change.

“I always had this fear,” she claimed, recalling how concerned she always was about the environment, even as a child. “It started from my childhood. ‘What would happen to this world when the water dries up?’ That was the first question in my head. So, I started reading up on climate change,” she recalled.

“I have always been conscious, and I tried to have a sustainable style of living, especially since I became an adult. But then I realised I wasn’t really doing enough and that’s when I started Climate Warrior,” she declared.

These were all the looming questions in my head and that’s when I realised I should start Climate Warrior,” she said.
