• Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra inspired by 'Swachh Bharat Abhiyan'

    2nd February 2017

    Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 'Swachh Bharat Abhiyan' which boasts about cleanliness and sanitation is an inspiration to many. While the country is marching its footsteps towards development, filmmakers on the other hand are making films on the subject and trying to create awareness about the same at grassroot level. Filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra is now all set to make a film on the same subject.

    The tentative title of the film is 'Mere Pyare Pradhan Mantri' and will have sanitation as its highlight plot. According to a source, Mehra was quoted saying as, "It's about an eight-year-old boy, Kanhaiya, who wants to make a toilet for his mother."

    The profits made by the film from various sources will be used in making more toilets.
