Even in an attempt to make ‘Swachh Bharat’ people’s movement, the Prime Minister had introduced a chain by welcoming nine famous celebrities to spread awareness on cleanliness. Among them, Priyanka Chopra, Salman Khan and Kamal Hassan were from Bollywood.
Recently, the Khiladi of Bollywood, Akshay Kumar has been spotted in Mathura to shoot for this movie. Akki was shooting a bike sequence and received a warm welcome from the mob.
