No more littering – A message from DDLJ, Deewar and More

Howrah Railway Station Swach Bharat

The Swachh Bharat bollywood posters taken from Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayege’s famous scene between Amrish Puri and Kajol have been inspiring enough to not throw any train in trains or on the platforms. The wit and attractiveness of the posters make sure that most of the passengers will look at them and learn it in a subtle way. This is one trend we all want to go beyond just trains. India is negligent when it comes to keeping its locality and surrounding clean.

The play on Mere Pass Maa hai scene from Deewar between the legendary Amitabh Bachchan and Shashi Kapoor is also another amazing example of this campaign.

We see Howrah Railway division’s innovativeness and intelligence in this as they hit the target audience with their favourite movie dialogues.
