Priyanka’s set for a face-off

Priyanka Chopra and Rahul Bose will compete on World Environment Day, June 5, to motivate people to do their bit to save earth.

The stars face off in a new video for the ultimate Environment Day Challenge – where they are calling individuals, groups, families and schools, even entire communities – to post details of their green activities online at

"And for Priyanka and Rahul, this is where the battle lines get drawn. When registering a green activity on the site, people will have the opportunity to pledge their activity to either one celebrity or the other," said a statement from the UN in New Delhi.

Priyanka has pledged to plant a tree for every green activity registered in her name while Rahul has pledged to plant two.

"Whether it’s switching from plastic bags to cloth bags, car-pooling with colleagues or organising a tree-planting day, green activities can be big, small, local, international, noisy, quiet … just as long as they’re green," it said.

India is, for the first time, the global host of the United Nations Environment Day this year.(IANS)
