Bollywood actress Esha Gupta -- who has appeared in films like Rustom and Total Dhamaal -- along with beauty pageant winner Naveli Deshmukh joined over 1200 Mumbai residents on Sunday, 21st July, to mark the 100th week of the Dadar beach cleanliness drive. Titled Big Mumbai Cleanup, the event was spread across 100 locations in the city and paid a tribute to Mumbai civic body workers who work hard to keep the city clean.
Esha shared details about the initiative and their activities to clean up the beach, "A lot of citizens are supporting this initiative. Everyone is realising that we need to make a difference today to have a tomorrow. We have been digging in the sand here since the time we got here because the plastic is all the way inside. If we don't do this today, there will be plastic on the entire planet tomorrow."
The actress further added, "This is such a great initiative but at the same time I feel doing this just one day is not enough. It has to go on and this one day is to create awareness about how important it is to keep the planet clean. We have to take responsibility as individuals and citizens and only then the change will happen."
The 33-year old actress was also in the news recently due to her sexual harassment posts on social media about a businessman in Delhi, who was identified as hotelier Rohit Vig. The actress had mentioned in her Twitter post that “this guy was literally raping me with his eyes” when she was at a restaurant with some friends, and had also shared some images of Rohit on her Instagram story. Rohit Vig has however denied these accusations and filed a criminal defamation complaint against the actress, to prosecute and punish the her under provisions of the law.
