New Delhi, Nov 3 (IANS) Popular veejay Cyrus Broacha has been awarded by PETA for refusing to do a stunt involving bulls in the action-adventure show 'Khatron Ke Khiladi 3'.

The actor and comedian has been chosen for the Hero to Animals Award by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). He will get a framed certificate and a letter of appreciation from the group, said a press statement.

Cyrus participated in the third season of 'Fear Factor-Khatron Ke Khiladi', which was hosted by Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra. During the show, the participants were asked to do several stunts and he refused to do the rodeo stunt.

'I wouldn't do this because this is like bullfighting and the bull surely doesn't enjoy this,' Broacha had said on the show, for the stunt, which required him to sit atop an angry bull for as long as possible.

PETA is proud of Broacha's stand.

'Cyrus Broacha is known for his funny pranks, but he knows that exploiting animals is no laughing matter. We hope that his decision to stick up for bulls will serve as an example for other entertainers to follow - and that they, too, will demand an end to any roles that involve harming or harassing animals,' said Abhinav Gogia of PETA India.
