NEW DELHI: A poster featuring an iconic scene from Deewar has a stamp of approval from none other than the Prime Minister himself. Why? Because of its Swachh Bharat connection.
The poster shows the scene from the 1975 film where Amitabh Bachchan is abandoned by his brother Shashi Kapoor and mother Nirupa Roy. While in the film, ‘maa‘ sides with the honest and righteous Ravi, in this poster she has different priorities.
“Nahi, jo pehle shauchalaya banaega, mai uske saath rahugi (I will stay with whoever builds a toilet first)”, reads the poster.

According to the image, the poster was put up in Nainital to encourage people to build toilets in their homes. The PM clearly loves it.
