save water fans social message for madhuri birthday

An ardent Madhuri Dixit fan, who has been celebrating the actress' birthday for two decades here, has launched a 'save water' campaign in this parched city ahead of the Bollywood diva's 46th birthday on May 15. A small chaat shop owner, Pappu Sardar, who starts his day with worshipping the portrait of Madhuri, has launched the campaign by putting up banners in the city including one before his shop at Sakchi and another in front of 'Cheshire Home', a home for differently abled women, at Sundernagar. The banners with Madhuri's photo appealed to the people to save water. The 42-year-old Pappu said he would distribute around 5000 cards with 'save water' message among the people to motivate them to save water.

"We have failed to check corruption but can save water unitedly considering it as nectar," Pappu said.

Besides the usual free distribution of chat on the birthday of the "Dhak Dhak girl", he said he would distribute over 500 earthen pots of two litre capacity filled with water on May 15. Apart from that, he said, around 2000 water bottle of 500 ml will also be distributed among Madhuri fans, inmates of 'Cheshire Home' and an old-age home to mark the occasion. To celebrate the diva's birthday, Pappu earlier arranged marriages of poor girls and installed cold water machines in old-age home and Cheshire Home.

For years, the chat owner release a calendar beginning with May 15, the birthday of Madhuri. This year, the calendar would be dedicated to the memory of film maker Yash Chopra who directed 'Dil to pagal hai' in 1997 starring Madhuri, Shah Rukh Khan and Karishma Kapoor.
