Bollywood celebrities such as Aamir Khan, Akshay Kumar, Karan Johar and others responded to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's request to encourage people to vote in the April-May national election. Soon after PM Modi's tweet, Aamir Khan wrote: "Absolutely right sir, Hon PM. Let us all engage as citizens of the biggest democracy in the world. Let us fulfill our responsibility, and avail of our right to get our voice heard. Vote!" Replying to PM Modi's tweet and referencing Toilet: Ek Prem Katha , Akshay Kumar wrote: "Well said, PM Modi. The true hallmark of a democracy lies in people's participation in the electoral process. Voting has to be a superhit prem katha between our nation and its voters." Tagged by PM Modi, Karan Johar also replied: "Honourable Prime Minister Narendra Modi, we as a fraternity are dedicated to the cause of creating high voter awareness and will make sure every endeavour is made to communicate the power of voting for a solid and democratic India! Jai Hind!"

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!
