Prime Minister Narendra Modi took to his Twitter handle to hail David Dhawan's upcoming film 'Coolie No.1' that recently became the first Bollywood film to go plastic-free. PM Modi in his tweet wrote that it was a 'superb gesture' by the entire team. Their decision came days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in his Independence Day speech, urged people to shun single-use plastic and encouraged usage of jute and cloth bags to protect the environment.
Varun Dhawan on September 1 announced on his Twitter handle that his film 'Coolie No. 1' is going plastic-free. He shared a picture from the sets and wrote: "The sets of #CoolieNo1 will now only use steel bottles." Producer of the movie Deepshikha D Deshmukh also took to Twitter to share the team's initiative. "Going #Plasticfree on #CoolieNo1 One sip at a time - hope we inspire many #BeatPlasticPollution #StayHydrated Thank you to the Coolie-est team for making this happen," she tweeted. Varun thanked the producer for the decision and urged his colleagues to do the same.
