Soon after Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged the citizens of the country to go plastic free, Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan-starrer Coolie No 1 team announced they have banned the use of plastic on their sets. Varun Dhawan took to Twitter and said, “Being a plastic-free nation is the need of the hour and great intiative taken by our prime minister and we can all do this by making small changes. The sets of #CoolieNo1 will now only use steel bottles.”
The actor also tagged PM Modi in the post -- to which the prime minister reacted only today.

PM Modi on Thursday posted on Twitter: “Superb gesture by the team of #CoolieNo1! Happy to see the film world contributing towards freeing India from single use plastic.”
Earlier, Varun had shared a picture of a mug gifted by his producer Jackie Bhagnani. He also urged his other actor friends to go plastic-free and wrote, "Thank u @honeybhagnani and @jackkybhagnani for making the sets of #CoolieNo1 plastic-free. I urge all my peers to do this.”
