He said, “This is not a one-time event; it is a translation of my pledge to keep neighbourhood clean, create many more ambassadors and collaborate with like-minded people across the region to expand and sustain the Swachh Bharat movement.”

The superstar advocated the use of litter bins and urged people to clean garbage on the streets to keep their surroundings hygienic.

He also unveiled ​www.​nag4SwachhBharat​.org, a website that spreads awareness and encourages public participation.

The website will use powerful social media platforms to leverage Nagarjuna’s million Facebook and Twitter followers to create micro level ambassadors and create Swachh Bharat events.
