A diligent actor, singer and great human being Vasihta N Simha adopted ‘Simha’ a lion cub at Banneraghatta National Park on January 1, 2021 and declared that we should care for the environment and animal world like his seniors in the Kannada cinema industry.
The lion cub that was born on April 24, 2020 was named as Vijayanarasimha = apparently the name of Vasishta N Simha father. It is adopted for one year by paying Rs.1 lakh and Rs.25000 for the naming of lion cub. The rising actor in Kannada, Telugu and now foraying into Tamil cinema Vasishta N Simha is the first celebrity from Kannada cinema industry to reach out Banneraghatta National Park and adopt a lion cub for one year.
Vasishta N Simha new year resolution was something unique and appreciable. He invited the media for the event and hosted lunch. ‘Kapadodu and Kayodhu Namma Dharma’ stated Simha addressing the media. Basically I am a lover of forest and animals mentioned Vasishta N Simha.
The CFO of Banneraghatta National Park Ms Vanasri was present at the presentation of certificates to Vasishta N Simha.
At various zoos senior actors Shivarajakumar, Darshan, Srujan Lokesh, Indrajith Lankesh, Chikkanna and others have already followed this step with magnanimity.
Ms Vanyasri CFO speaking on this occasion stated that this kind of awareness is very important. Among six big Zoos this Banneraghatta National Park is also one of them. The upkeep of animals here requires Rs.16 lakhs a year. We need more such people. We have 191 persons from various segments adopting different animals at Banneraghatta National Park. We had even started an online adaptation service.
