MUMBAI: Actress Vidya Balan, who was a part of “Lage Raho Munnabhai”, a film that gave birth to the term Gandhigiri, says she tries to practice Mahatma Gandhi’s preachings in her day-to-day life.
“It may or may not be alive in my surroundings, but I try to practice Gandhigiri. I am not always successful in doing it, but I keep trying,” she told reporters when she was asked whether she sees Gandhigiri around her anymore?
Director Rajkumar Hirani gave a modern twist to Mahatma Gandhi’s non-violence lessons in his 2006 hit film “Lage Raho Munnabhai”. In the movie, Sanjay Dutt, who plays a goon, adopts Gandhigiri to deal with the problems.
“All of us should try to do it and not wait for others to take the lead,” said the actress at the Global Indian Music Awards Sunday.
The nation Tuesday celebrates Gandhiji’s 143rd birth anniversary.
