Today I went on a cleanliness drive to Versova Beach with my friends and family and in reality, the pleasure I felt in cleaning the beach is indescribable.... In Mahatma Gandhi ji's words ... "An ounce of practice is worth more than tons of preaching" .... So please do your bit #SwachhBharat #SwachhataHiSeva.”

I somehow fail to understand these trolls. Just because you have a medium to express your opinions freely (and anonymously in some cases), does not mean you put out nasty comments to a celebrity who is working towards a noble cause. The only solution to stop these trolls is to ‘disable’ comments. Also, isn’t it convenient to sit inside four walls and say what you want to? This is uncalled for.
Coming back to Anushka’s gesture, we say, “We are proud of you.”
