Take a look at the picture Anil Kapoor shared.
The delegation of Bollywood stars met Prime Minister Narendra Modi last Thursday in New Delhi. Actors like Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Ranbir Kapoor, Varun Dhawan, Ayushmann Khurrana, Vicky Kaushal, Sidharth Malhotra, Bhumi Pednekar and filmmakers such as Karan Johar, Ekta Kapoor, Rohit Shetty and others were invited for discussions on how the movie industry has played an important role in building a better nation and a better society through entertainment. Filmmakers also thanked and acknowledged PM for reducing GST rates on film tickets.
"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," Karan Johar shared details from the meeting, along with an epic selfie.
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!
