Actor Akkineni Nagarjuna, who was chosen as one of the ambassadors of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan, has appreciated a short film made by Telugu comedian Ambati Srinivas on the campaign.
“When I told Nagarjuna sir that I made a short film called ‘Swachh Bharat’, he instantly wanted to watch it. After watching the film, he appreciated my effort in making the film,” Srinivas told IANS.
In the short film, Srinivas has compared the earth with a mother.
“The idea was to remind people that the earth and one’s mother should be respected equally. Just like how we look after our mothers, we all should look after the earth too,” he said.
Srinivas plans to upload the film on video-sharing websites and donate the money he makes from it to the victims of cyclone Hudhud.
