Amitabh, wearing a white kurta and pyjama along with a blue waistcoat, was seen helping clean up garbage with his bare hands, holding a broom and sweeping the road.
"You are praising me for picking up trash with my bare hands but there's nothing special about it. Our sanitation workers don't always have gloves," Amitabh said in an interview to a news channel.
"When you see someone littering. Go stop them. Tell them what they are doing is wrong. When you keep doing this repeatedly, people will change," he added.
