Likewise, Kareena Kapoor declared her sponsorship to the lighting of Chanderi, and Deepika Padukone adopted Ambegaon, both villages in Maharashtra. Kokkirai Lanka, a village in Dia Mirza's maiden state Andhra Pradesh was taken up by he lady.

Many like Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Uday Chopra, Imraan Khan took the Greenathon pledge to promote the cause in every way. There were talks of how fuel could be saved by simple avoidance of misuse and implementation of eco-friendly means and products.

Shilpa Shetty who was seen planting a baby sapling stated that practicing what she preached was her conscious effort and her small gesture would go a long way to help regain and retain the ecological balances.

Meanwhile, Rahul Bose and Milind Soman ran the 100 Km marathon in aid of the cause. Milind admitted he had wished to do something special. Raveena Tandon was also present to flag off the 24 hours long event. All marathon participants and cheerleaders were seen sporting the black and green We mean Green t-shirts.
