Bollywood superstar Salman Khan has accepted Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 'Swachh Bharat' challenge to clean public places. Modi appealed to people to dedicate 100 hours a year towards cleanliness, and as a part of which he also invited Bollywood stars Salman, Priyanka Chopra and Kamal Haasan to help clean public places.

The 48-year-old 'Dabangg' star took to Twitter to accept Modi's invitation. "Me and my Foundation accept the invite from our honourable Prime Minister for Swachh Bharat and will give our 100 per cent for My Clean India," he tweeted.

Priyanka Chopra also showed her support for the cause by tweeting, "I humbly accept respected Prime Minster Narendra Modiji's challenge. This is an idea that is long overdue. If we don't get involved and support this campaign, nothing can happen. But if we come together we can make a difference. Every action we take will be important. I want to make the change. I want a clean India. It's time to clean up our act."

“Dhoom 3” star Aamir Khan also joined Modi's mission by taking the pledge with him at the India Gate to thousands of people, including schools children and government employees at Rajpath for remaining committed to cleanliness to make the country clean.
