Bollywood star Vicky Kaushal says Bollywood film sets are “taking extreme care” to go plastic-free. This comes days after Varun Dhawan starrer Coolie No 1 became the first set to do away with plastic bottles.
On the green carpet of IIFA Rocks on Monday evening, Vicky shared how film sets are increasingly becoming plastic-free and opting for steel bottles. “The less you use plastic, the better. Better for us, nature, air and water. What we do today, we are answerable to the next generation. We need to be careful regarding our nature. You won’t find any plastic bottles on our film sets. Now, there will be steel bottles. Extreme care is taken that there is minimal plastic or none at all. Every film set is taking care of it,” the actor told reporters.
Actor Katrina Kaif, who was present at IIFA Rocks 2019, also spoke about single-use plastic.
“What Prime Minister Modi has done is an absolutely fantastic initiative. It is very simple. Even if you do something as small as not using plastic straws, not drinking water from plastic bottles, it’ll make a huge difference,” Katrina shared.
Varun Dhawan tweeted a few days ago a picture of himself with the cast and crew of Coolie No 1 holding steel bottles in their hands.
