Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui has lent support to an initiative aimed at increasing greenery in Mumbai.

In association with Radio City’s campaign “Hara Hai Toh Bara Ahe”, the “Manto” actor has urged people to plant more trees to curb various environmental problems.

“Mumbai is facing several environmental problems that are on the rise and the receding green cover is one of the key aspects amplifying this issue.
