Anushka Sharma has always been vocal when it comes to issues concerning the environment. She is someone who will roll her windows down and give someone a nice hearing if they fail to obey rules and maintain cleanliness. So, she makes for the perfect ambassador to talk about hygiene during the times of COVID-19.
The video shared by the Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan has Anushka talking about how it is so important for us to maintain strict hygiene now more than ever. She reminds us of this movement started by the women of India where they wanted to put across the ‘darwaza band toh bimaari band‘ message, talking about the importance of using restrooms and building proper sanitation facilities to curb diseases. She emphasises the importance of that message now, during the times of Coronavirus where safety and hygiene are of most importance to fight the disease.
Darwaza Band toh Bimari Band! Our #SwachhBharat Ambassador @AnushkaSharma is back to remind us of this integral thought as #IndiaFightsCorona & we maintain our special focus on Swachhata.#SwachhBharatSwasthBharat @narendramodi @PMOIndia @gssjodhpur @smritiirani @PIB_India pic.twitter.com/dFw3enWAG8

This is such an important and relevant message in times like these, and put across so beautifully by Anushka!
The actress has been quarantining at home with her husband Virat Kohli during the lockdown and posts some super fun videos with him and some lovely pictures of herself during these times. The couple have been vocal about staying home and staying safe to fight the virus and did their bit to help those in need by contributing to the PM Cares Fund.
