Karan, Rohit and Vicky post pictures with PM Modi; thank him for his support towards the film industry

Several celebs posted pictures with PM Modi after their meeting

It would not be wrong to say that the ultimate selfie of the year 2019 is perhaps the one with several top Bollywood celebrities posing with the honourable Prime Minister Narendra Modi. For the uninitiated, a delegation of young Hindi film actors and filmmakers were invited to meet the PM on Thursday in New Delhi to discuss how the entertainment industry can contribute to nation building.

Powerful and timely conversations can bring about change and this was one of what we hope will become a regular conversation. Meeting the Honorable Prime Minister @narendramodi today was an incredible opportunity. As a community, there is a huge interest to contribute to nation building. There is so much that we want to do. And can do and this dialogue was towards how and what ways we can do that. When the youngest country (in demography) joins hands with the largest movie industry in the world, we hope to be a force to reckon with. Together we would love to inspire and ignite positive changes to a transformative India. The film industry would also like to send a huge thanks for the GST reduction in movie ticket prices that was implemented recently! Thank you so much for your time, Sir!

While their past meetings drew ire for zero women representation, this time Alia, Ekta, Ashwiny and Bhumi lent the woman power.
