Pragya and Abhishek Kapoor organised the Mahim beach clean-up on occasion of their son Samsher's 1st birthday. Pragya Kapoor took to her Instagram account to thank 'true heroes' of the clean-up and wrote, "Today has truly been overwhelming, I’m grateful and humbled by all the love showered my way. But I want to bring light to the true heroes of the @mahimbeachcleanup - meet @rabia.tewari and @indranilsm they along with a great team of volunteers have been cleaning the beach every Saturday for the past 2 years. I feel truly privileged to have the honour to associate myself with them. Thank you guys, for being Mumbai’s environmental warriors! #mahimbeachcleanup [sic]"
Pragya Kapoor believes that while birthday parties are fun, it's more important to give back to the city that they call their home. Talking about the same, Pragya in a chat with mid-day said, "Mahim beach needs our immediate attention. The beach and the marine life both are suffering, due to the Mithi river constantly bringing along trash, that we humans throw into it. We need to educate each other and bring awareness to the problem while working on a sustainable solution.

Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi, who recently returned from their holiday in the Maldives, were also part of Pragya Kapoor's clean-up drive in Mahim.
Along with Indranil and Rabia who have been leading the beach clean-up initiative since the past 2 years, Pragya Kapoor wants to bring focus to Mahim beach which remains in a sorry state due to lack of attention. Her main aim is to promote the idea of sustainable living by setting an example with this beach clean-up drive which is the first step in the long plan-of-action ahead aiming to minimise our ecological footprint and giving back to the society we're a part of.

Television actress Pooja Gor was also part of the celebs, who took part in the clean up drive at Mahim beach. She also took her Instagram account to share her thoughts about the same and wrote, "Us #Mumbaikars are very lucky to be surrounded by beaches. But these beaches are suffering in silence. And so is the marine life. ALL of us at some point have been a contributor to the plastic waste in these water bodies. The reality is daunting & it hits you hard when you see it for yourself. And since this is our doing, it is OUR responsibility to CLEAN UP. The sooner we realise, the better it is for us as this directly & indirectly affects us. Kudos to everyone who is committed to doing their bit in cleaning up the beaches. @mahimbeachcleanup started by @indranilsm & @rabia.tewari is one such initiative. Also, BIG to @pragyadav @gattukapoor for organising today's clean up to spread awareness & as a part of celebration for their son Shamsher's 1st birthday. Thank you for making me a part of it. #ichoosetoclean #mahimbeachcleanup #beachcleanup #jagomumbai #mumbaikar [sic]"
