The Hera Pheri Trio Returns, This Time To Motivate People To Construct Toilets At Home

New Delhi: Remember the famous trio of Bollywood from 2000 – Baburao, Shyam and Raju from the iconic comedy – Hera Pheri? Starring Paresh Rawal, Akshay Kumar, Suneil Shetty, the movie was a laughing riot. Now the popular Hera Pheri characters are back in action, only this time with a swachh agenda. Baburao, Shyam, Raju, together as a part of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan initiative through a short film are motivating households to construct toilets at home.

In the video, Baburao, Shyam, Raju are discussing how they should spend the extra money they have saved. Shyam suggests they should buy a gas stove, whereas Baburao says they should invest the money in buying a television. Raju informs them of shameful instances of open defecation and suggests instead of spending money on unnecessary items, they should think about building a toilet at home.

Raju’s suggestion gets Baburao and Shyam thinking. And, finally they admit that having a toilet at home is a more pressing need.

Baburao, Shyam, Raju are not alone. In India, for most of the households, toilet construction is only considered if and when there are additional resources available. The message that three are propagating says, ‘If there is a toilet at home, then only a home is complete.’
