Priyanka adopts a Lioness

Priyanka Chopra is still fondly remembered as Jungli Billi for her role in the film Don. And the lady has made news now for adopting a lioness from Ranchi’s Birsa Munda zoo. However, it’s not the first for Priyanka who will soon be seen in her next fim, Teri Meri Kahaani opposite Shahid Kapoor. She had earlier adoped a tigress named Durga from the same institute and after her adoption contract expired in April 2012, she decided to renew it, adopting a lioness named Sundari, this time.

“We have received a cheque of Rs 2,00,000 from Priyanka Chopra’s foundation. She has adopted lioness Sundari,” a zoo official said. Last year the Ranchi zoo introduced a scheme for adoption of animals. The money is used for the upkeep of the animals and to create awareness about wildlife. Besides individuals, some corporate houses and public sector undertakings have adopted elephants, peacock, tigers and leopards.
