New Delhi, Sept. 29 -- Actor Mohammad Nazim is on cloud nine after receiving a personal letter from Prime Minister Narendra Modi and has pledged his support to the nationwide cleanliness initiave, Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan, kickstarted by the government.
 
"Recently, I have received a letter from our prime minister. Narendra Modi. In the letter, he shared and explained the importance of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan. I personally feel that a cleaner India is better India. I am a fitness freak and I know I can be fit only when I have a healthy body and healthy atmosphere," says Nazim.
 
The actor is aware of India's need to give its people a healthy environment and can't help but compare its state to conditions in other countries.
 
"Whenever I have been overseas, I have noticed this huge difference in cleanliness. In India, we are way behind. We stay in our house in a very neat and clean environment. But the moment we step out, we are surrounded with garbage. There is plastic lying everywhere. No doubt Mumbai floods every year. Abroad, when someone takes out their pets for a walk, they clean the pet's poop. People over there are very much aware and conscious. India is such a great country, so I believe that we should work hard to make it cleaner," he says.
 
Nazim, who rose to fame with the TV show Saath Nibhana Saathiya, also adds, "As a celebrity, I know I have certain social responsibility. Now, it is my responsibility to see how I can put my effort in this noble cause."
