Actress Kajol says she and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi share similar views when it comes to certain issues.

The 41-year-old actress met Modi in Delhi to discuss the ‘Help a Child Reach 5’ campaign as its brand ambassador.

The initiative aims to spread awareness about good hand-washing habits.

“[Modi] has initiated Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan [Clean India Mission] and it coincides with our Help a Child Reach 5 initiative, so we thought of meeting and discussing things with him. We are on a same page as our goals are same. We want a hygienic environment,” Kajol said.

“He is the best person to give tips on it. The meeting went well as we discussed a lot of interesting stuff. We want the mortality rate of children and people in the society to come down,” she added.

The actress said the prime minister lauded the Help a Child Reach 5 initiative.

“He appreciated our work. He understood what we were trying to do. He understood that there is a need to give importance to hand washing to save children and people,” Kajol said.

She revealed it was Modi who gave campaigners the idea to utilise a mass media platform for advertisements.

Every year, millions of children fail to reach their fifth birthday because of diseases such as diarrhoea and pneumonia, often caused by poor hygiene.
