Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Ranbir Kapoor and a few more young and influential Bollywood actors and filmmakers met Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi on Thursday and clicked a selfie with him.

The picture was shared by filmmaker Karan Johar. "Powerful and timely conversations can bring about change and this was one of what we hope will become a regular conversation. Meeting the Honourable Prime Minister @narendramodi today was an incredible opportunity," he wrote in the caption.

He added, “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!”

Earlier in December PM Modi held a Producers meeting wherein he was joined by Actors-producers Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar, Karan Johar, Sidharth Roy Kapur, and Ritesh Sidhwani and it welcomed a lot of criticism as no women were included in the panel.
