As India celebrates the birth anniversary of the father of our nation, Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, took to his social media to share a new video about Swachh Bharat Mission.
In the video, the Zero actor pleads the people of this country to refrain from defecating in the open. He also alerts them about the health hazards that people are exposed to because of open defecation. The actor finally concludes the video by paying his homage to Mahatma Gandhi and requests people to join and support Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi’s Swachh Bharat campaign.
The actor shared a second video, in which he wrote the following as the caption: “Ek kadam swachhata ki oar… @SwachhBharatGov @PMOIndia #MyCleanIndia #SwachhBharat.” The Zero star emphasises on the importane of keeping toilets clean while also requesting people to keep the floor and the toilet seat clean once they are done using it.
Not just Shah Rukh Khan, his Diwale Dulhania Le Jayenge co-star Kajol also shared her thoughts of Gandhi Jayanti while making a similar plea to the people of India – to keep toilets clean and only defecate in toilets and not in the open.
