Looks like, the mania of ‘Dirty Picture’ has caught the Indian Government as Ministry of Rural Development has decided to rope in sexy starlet vidya balan to feature in their ” Clean Picture”, i.e.: educational campaigns of Sanitation ‘Nirmal Bharat Abhiyan.. She will work for two years as the Brand Ambassador for this Ministry offering her support and services in development of Drinking Water and Sanitation in rural areas. That’s a good fortune for Vidya to reach more into public with a Clean Picture.
‘This will be a clean picture. What could be a matter of more pride than doing a dirty picture on screen and a clean picture off it? This is the real me. This duty will work a lot because this is a National Movement. I take this as an opportunity to do a Clean Picture off the screen after doing Dirty Picture on the screen.’
said vidya balan gracing 59th National Film Awards 2011 function in New Delhi recently. Minister Jairam Ramesh informed that Vidya will appear in promotion of construction and use of Toilets in rural areas and will be involved into restructuring of Total Sanitation through ‘Nirmal Bharat Abhiyan.’
