Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has praised the cleaners of Mumbai and called them the true flag bearers of Swachch Bharat (Clean India) ambassadors.

Bachchan, who is an ambassador of the Clean India campaign that is a brainchild of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, shared a photograph of some workers.

“They be the true bearers of Swachch Bharat ambassadors... the workers that work tirelessly despite inclement weather conditions,” Bachchan captioned the image.

On Wednesday, the Mumbai airport extended closure of all flight operations on the main runway till 2pm as work on towing out a stranded SpiceJet aircraft continued amidst ongoing heavy rains, low visibility and strong winds, officials had said.

According to India Meteorological Department figures, Mumbai suburbs recorded a 304mm rainfall till Thursday morning, making it the third highest downpour in a single day since the great Mumbai floods when the city experienced 945mm rains, followed by 316mm on August 29 this year.

On the work front, Bachchan, who is currently seen hosting the ninth season of Kaun Banega Crorepati, has two films in his kitty — Thugs Of Hindostan and 102 Not Out.
