Imran Khan - Bollywood Star Imran Khan Honoured By Peta

Bollywood superstar Imran Khan has been honoured by animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (Peta) for helping a troubled dog.

The actor has received a Hero to Animals Award, which honours those who help abused creatures, for intervening when he allegedly saw a trainer hitting a dog on the set of his latest movie, Gori Tere Pyaar Mein.

Peta's India manager of Media and Celebrity Projects Sachin Bangera says, "This dog would have been terrified and endured more abuse were it not for Imran's compassionate and quick action. We encourage everyone to stop and speak up for animals who are subjected to pain or suffering, because if you don't, maybe no one else will."

Bosses at the organisation reportedly sent Khan a basket of dog-shaped vegan chocolates as a mark of gratitude for helping the animal.
