To celebrate this occasion, Salman Khan took to his social media pages to share a positive message with his fans. He posted a video wtih the following caption, “"#GandhiJayanti k is mauke pe, Bhai ne bola aapko message dene ko... aur Chulbul Pandey is ready!" In the video, he asks his fans to celebrate Gandhi Jayanti with fervour and to keep their focus on being fit as well as keeping India clean, saying “Swacch Bharat, Swacch Bharatiya, Fit India, Fit Indians."
