Priyanka's video released about Swachh Bharat Abhiyan

Prime Minister Modi nominated Priyanka Chopra as one of his Navratna. She says she wants to do something that she can sustain. She chose a place in Versova where she had shot while shooting for Agneepath and set of basti was put there. She realized that people live on mounds of garbage. She dutifully took up the challenge wearing cute pink gloves. She told helpers who were not wearing chappals not to help her. There was at least 10 feet of garbage over the years. She said she will make sure to put all her resources to rehabilitate the people who lived there. She said Swachh Bharat Abhiyan is about changing the whole mindset and not just cleaning the place and thinking that my responsibility is over.

Prime Minister Modi applauds Priyanka in his tweet for her effort to create Swachh Bharat.

Priyanka has nominated Sun Founfation's Vikramjit Sahney, that supported her in the drive, Siddharth Roy Kapoor, Pranoy Roy, Vikram Chandra and team from NDTV, Madhur Bhandarkar, IIM-A students and faculty, taxi union and auto rickshaw union of Mumbai, Lions club Mumbai, Kanika Sadanand.
