Hinting at a possible association with the government for ‘Swachh Azadi’, the actor tweeted back, “Thank you so much for your kind words and time Sir. Looking forward to associating and making a difference #SwachchAzaadi.”

At an event held earlier this month the actor shared a dialogue which emphasised on why it is important to build toilets, especially for women in India, “Agar biwi pass chahiye to ghar main sandaas (toilet) chahiye.”(If you want your wife to stay with you then build a toilet in your house.)

Apart from spreading the message in an entertaining way, the actor has also personally associated himself with the Swachh Bharat campaign.

He proposed an idea of a toilet app that would help people detect the nearest toilet to them. He also suggested that male and female toilets be constructed at every 500 metres or a kilometre.
