Baahubali director SS Rajamouli, who is busy with the pre-production of RRR movie, has accepted Kavitha Kalvakuntla's Haritha Haram challenge and planted banyan, gulmohar and neem saplings.

Charity organisations Igniting Minds and Walk for Water are celebrating former President Dr Abdul Kalam's birth anniversary on July 27 in a green way – by promoting Telangana government's Haritha Haram program and challenging people to plant three saplings each. And MP Kavitha Kalvakuntla is one of those. She responded by planting three saplings in front of her house in Hyderabad on July 21.
