Filmmaker Sets An Example To The Masses!
June 16, 2017
Filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, who built over 800 toilets in slums in the last four years, has obtained permission from Mumbai’s BMC to build twenty toilets in Ghatkopar.
WHAT IS HE UPTO NOW?
The director has got a NOC (No Objection Certificate) from the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) to build 20 toilets in a slum in Ghatkopar, where he is shooting Mere Pyare Prime Minister. This would include five separate toilets for men and women and teachers in two municipal schools in the Khandooba area. In association with the NGO, Yuva Unstoppable, Mehra has been interacting with the community at the grassroots level to increase awareness about using a toilet and the evils of open defecation.
He has already built 800 toilets with the help of the NGO in the last four years.
