Actor John Abraham has now come out in open to support the cause of Aarey. In a video, John is seen saying that he has full faith in the judiciary of the country and feels that everything will happen for the best. He also shares that he was born and brought up in the city and feels for the cause.

In his tweet he said, Aarey the world's only urban biodiverse forest, is our lung. We must Stand Up, Speak Up, Show Up to Protect it. 

People of Mumbai along with activists have been protesting to save Aarey after Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation's (BMC) Tree Authority gave the nod to cut 2,700 trees in Aarey colony to construct a car shed for the Metro 3 (Colaba-Bandra-SEEPZ) project.

Earlier celebrities such as Shraddha Kapoor and Lata Mangeshar too had come in support of saving the trees in Aarey.

Congress has filed an affidavit against this move. Shiv Sena has also joined the opposition against Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation's (BMC) Tree Authority decision to cut 2,700 trees in Aarey Colony for the construction of Metro 3 car shed. Aditya Thackeray is often seen tweeting against cutting of these trees and he recently even penned an opinion piece in a leading daily questioning this move.

However, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis was in favour of cutting of these trees. He added that the Supreme Court has said that they are not forest trees and chopping trees and forest being destroyed is just a misconception.
