Bollywood actress Rani Mukerjee's noble deed of helping a dog in distress has won her an award. Her kind deed has been recognised by animal rights organisation People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India.

Rani was shooting for her upcoming film "Aiyya" when she reportedly saw a stray dog being harassed by a few onlookers on the set. She rushed to help the dog by stopping them.

For this, Rani will receive a Hero to Animals Award from PETA India.

"This dog would have been terrified and suffered more abuse were it not for Rani's compassionate and quick action," said Sachin Bangera, PETA India manager of media and celebrity projects.

"We encourage everyone to stop and speak up for animals who are subjected to pain or suffering, because if you don't, maybe no one else will," he added.

Past recipients of PETA's Hero to Animals Award include actors like Zarine Khan, for rescuing a cat from the street, and Cyrus Broacha, for refusing to perform a stunt that involved riding a bull.

..so what she did was obviously something very good, however, most people would have helped the dog..and it is kinda weird how she's getting an award for doing something so common and human.

celebrities are ordinary humans, not gods.

Had a 'Aam' person had done the same good deed, would people have been talking about it or given a award to him/her???

Don't get me wrong, I applaud Rani's action, she did good!

THE PEOPLE ABUSING THE DOG SHOULD BE SACKED OR FINANCIALLY PENALIZED...

This is newsworthy? An actress saves a dog in distress and gets an award. Yet we had a 17 year old girl molested by a number of men and that did not make the headlines until the video went viral. Common industry. Where are your scruples?
