Bollywood actor John Abraham has often spoken about several issues, and his personality makes people listen to him when he shares the message. John has used his voice to advocate for animals and keeping his contributions in mind, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India has named him its Person of the Year for 2020.
 
This year, Abraham sent a letter urging e-retailer Quikr to stop trading in live animals – and that's just the tip of the iceberg.

Over the years, he's teamed up with PETA India to push for a ban on animal circuses, speak up for Mumbai's "dancing" monkeys, and star in an ad urging everyone not to keep birds in cages. He also adopted a community dog, his beloved Bailey; urged authorities to stop illegal pig slaughter in Goa; and put a football jersey on the auction block to benefit PETA India's work to help animals.
 
Talking about the same, PETA India Director of Celebrity and Public Relations, Sachin Bangera, said, "John Abraham has been helping PETA India advocate for animals since our inception, and he shows no signs of slowing down. If birds are suffering in cages, puppies are being cruelly sold, or animals are in danger anywhere in the world, we can count on him to come to the rescue."
 
Past recipients of PETA India's Person of the Year award include Dr Shashi Tharoor, former Supreme Court Justice KS Panicker Radhakrishnan, cricketer Virat Kohli, and actors Anushka Sharma, Sunny Leone, Sonam Kapoor, Kapil Sharma, Hema Malini, R Madhavan, and Jacqueline Fernandez.

 On the work front, he'll star in the upcoming film Satyameva Jayate 2, which is a sequel to the 2018 movie.
