“A motion picture company has to be as socially responsible as any other manufacturing company, if not more, because it influences the mind and behaviour of millions of people all over the world through its movies. PNC sees its role as a thought leader in the area of environmental and species protection and strongly believes that movies can and must change the way we treat ecological and wildlife issues. Al Gore and Leonardo de Caprio raised this at the Oscars in Hollywood this year. We, in India, have been campaigning for this for years and are proud to be recognized for this achievement,” says Nandy.
