BJP lawmaker Hema Malini was heavily trolled when she picked up a broom and took part in a cleanliness drive at Parliament last Saturday. The latest to join the list is none other than her husband and veteran actor, Dharmendra. 

Dharmendra, 83, was asked on Twitter whether his wife had ever picked up a broom in her life.

"Yes, in films. She looked like a novice to me too," Dharmendra replied in Hindi, adding that he helped his mother during his childhood with household chores and called himself "very efficient" at sweeping with brooms.

He ended his tweet by saying he "loves cleanliness" followed by a number of green leaves emoticons.

His tweet was liked over 400 times and Twitter users praised the actor for his candour.

He also tweeted that Hema Malini, the BJP lawmaker from Mathura, sweeping at Parliament is a message to keep the country clean and requested everyone to "feel for New India" - which is Prime Minister Narendra Modi's vision.

Actor-politician Hema Malini was seen in a video on Saturday trying to sweep Parliament premises as a part of the "Swachh Bharat Abhiyan" along with BJP Minister Anurag Thakur. She was called out on Twitter for appearing awkward with the broom.

Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah couldn't resist a dig.

Hema Malini spoke to reporters after the cleaning drive and said she would be doing this in her constituency in Mathura as well.

"It is highly appreciable that the Speaker of the House took initiative to carry out 'Swachh Bharat Abhiyan' on the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, in Parliament premises. I will go back to Mathura next week and carry out this Abhiyan there as well," she was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
