Rajkummar Rao, Bhumi Padnekar, Sidharth Malhotram, Varun Dhawan, and filmmakers
like Karan Johar, Ekta Kapoor and Rohit Shetty were seen in the shot. The epic
group selfie was taken by Ranveer and shared by Karan on the social media. The
producer-director also shared his thoughts after meeting with the Indian Prime
“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,” Karan wrote.
“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,” he added.
He also went on to thank the government for reducing the GST
on movie tickets. “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!”
This isn’t the first time Bollywood stars have met the PM

Rai among many others sat down with Modi to discuss “various” things.
