Bollywood has taken lead to promote India’s plastic-free movement with Varun Dhawan's upcoming movie "Coolie No. 1" becoming the first Bollywood film to go plastic-free.
The movie’s producer Deepshikha Deshmukh announced on twitter today that the movie is going plastic-free and urged her peers to do the same.
Actor Varun Dhawan too applauded the move and tweeted that being a plastic-free nation is the need of the hour.
This comes days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in his Independence Day speech, urged people to shun single-use plastic and encouraged usage of jute and cloth bags to protect the environment. (AIR NEWS)
