New Delhi: ‘Don’t waste your love on somebody, who doesn’t value it,’ said William Shakespeare in his classic play Romeo and Juliet. Now, actors Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt have given it a Swachh Twist. The duo have come together to recreate the magic of Romeo and Juliet, only this time, to spread the message of Swachhta – ‘Don’t waste your love on somebody, who doesn’t value #SwachhIndia.’ The short clip which is the part of the clean India initiative has been released today by the actors on Twitter and hopes to drive home an important point – If we don’t litter abroad then why do we litter in India.
Actor Varun Dhawan shared the video where Romeo is ready to walk away from Juliet with a message, ’When you don’t litter in pardes, then why litter in Swades.’

Last month, Alia Bhatt also lent her support to the Banega Swachh India Cleanathon and had point that it all boils down to awareness. She said,
Awareness is the only way through which one realises what all needs to be done to make India a clean country.
