Karan Johar, and fellow Bollywood filmmaker Mahaveer Jain, have taken a charter-load of young Bollywood talent to New Delhi for a meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi this afternoon. Sources from 7, Lok Kalyan Marg (formerly 7, Racecourse road), the official residence of the PM, say the meeting will begin after tea.
As to what the meeting is about: Our celebrities are cherished as role models by the young generation. Their words and actions carry the power to bring change in the country. It was felt by KJo and Jain that an interactive platform to establish a dialogue between these icons of the entertainment world and the visionary leadership of our country was required to be created for this purpose.
