All the actors are taking part on and off the sets and one actor decided that her set was going to stay clean friendly! Richa Chadha is on a mission to not litter the ghats of Varanasi, where she is currently filming Neeraj Ghaywan’s “Masaan”. Richa has instructed everyone not to use any kind of plastic — bags, cups or plates — on the sets, and has asked everyone to clean the whole surrounding area once the team packs up for the day. Hopefully other sets will take this step and action when filming! It’s a great idea!
Talking about the effort towards a clean India, Richa said in a statement:
“It’s a very positive campaign, and although we consider the river Ganga holy, we provide only lip service to it’s sanctity. “All the rubbish of the ghats finds it’s way into the river. I think if a small contribution from our end can make a difference, then why not.”
“This is in a way our initiative to clean India. Banaras is beautiful and I want it to be this way — untouched and clean,” she added.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the Clean India Mission Oct 2 on Mahatma Gandhi’s birth anniversary to promote cleanliness and hygiene in the country. So folks, be sure to pick up something you see on the streets and throw in the trash can as we make a Clean India, a Healthy India!
