New Delhi, October 7: A delegation of young Hindi film actors and filmmakers like Karan Johar, Rohit Shetty and Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari met Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi on Thursday to discuss how the entertainment industry can contribute to nation building.
Karan, who was a part of past industry meetings with the PM, led the delegation which included names like Ekta Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Ranbir Kapoor, Ranveer Singh, Sidharth Malhotra, Ayushmann Khurrana, Rajkummar Rao, Vicky Kaushal and Bhumi Pednekar. And while he shared the epic selfie of all these stars posing with the honourable PM, an elated Ranveer Singh recently shared his Jaadoo ki Jhappi moment with PM on Twitter.

Actor Sidharth Malhotra who was also a part of the young delegation too shared a pic with PM Modi where the duo is exchanging pleasantries:
Thank you @narendramodi sir for an enriching and insightful conversation. It was an honour to meet you today and we are grateful for your support towards the film industry! pic.twitter.com/LCCDuRtVP2— Sidharth Malhotra (@SidMalhotra) January 10, 2019
Karan also thanked the government on behalf of the film industry for the GST reduction in movie ticket prices that was implemented recently. It was a result of the meetings held with the PM last year.
While their past meetings drew ire for zero women representation, this time Alia, Ekta, Ashwiny and Bhumi lent the woman power.
