Priyanka Chopra Jonas, who is shooting her film The White Tiger in Delhi, has voiced concerns over the rising pollution levels in the Capital.

The actress posted a selfie on her Instagram page, where she is seen wearing a pollution mask.

'Shoot days for #thewhitetiger. It's so hard to shoot here right now that I can't even imagine what it must be like to live here under these conditions. We are blessed with air purifiers and masks. Pray for the homeless. Be safe everyone. #airpollution #delhipollution #weneedsolutions #righttobreathe' she posts.

Delhi is witnessing one of the worst episodes of pollution and smog.

Pollution levels peaked to a three-year high as hundreds of distraught people took to social media to say they wanted to leave the city due to poor air quality.

The White Tiger is an adaptation of Aravind Adiga's novel of the same name.

It is directed by Ramin Bahrani of Fahrenheit 451 and 99 Homes fame. 

Adiga's book follows the extraordinary journey of a self-made man from tea-shop worker in a village to successful entrepreneur in a big city.

Murder, love and deceit become the ultimate price for ambition.
