Cleanliness will have a new face now. It will have muscles, good looks and yes, charm that drives the country mad. It will be Salman Khan.
Being a popular actor having a huge fan following, Salman would extend his support in terms of offering five mobile toilets across city. He will also appeal to citizens not to defecate in open.

Even in the city of glamor and dreams, the problem like open defecation is deep rooted and hard to fight. According to an estimate of the civic body, there were over 117 major open defecation spots in city, mainly located across the plots owned by government departments and agencies, which have been reduced to 77 in last two years following the BMC’s extensive drive against the menace.
Mr. Kiran Dighavkar, who has been associated with the cleanliness drive has been entrusted with the responsibility to supervise the anti-open defecation campaign in the city. He said, “Seeing his vast fan following, we had approached him last week to be associated with our drive and his response has been extremely encouraging for us as he accepted our offer within a week.”
He said the superstar would associate himself with the drive through his NGO “Being Human” which has informed the civic body by writing a letter.
“We are pleased to inform you that Salman Khan will be happy to accept your invitation and through Being Human — the Salman Khan Foundation– will help the BMC in creating awareness about cleanliness drive”, stated a letter addressed to Dighavkar, written by a trustee of Being Human Foundation.
