Remember Kartik Aaryan's 'backfie' post with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and filmmakers Karan Johar, Imtiaz Ali and Dinesh Vijan? The post got an epic response from PM Modi on Twitter and it's just cracking up the Internet. "Not losers but Rockstars! No selfie Jab We Met but there will always be another occasion," read PM Modi's reply to Kartik Aaryan's post, initially shared by Imtiaz Ali, the director of films like Jab We Met and Rockstar. The picture was taken at the opening of National Museum of Indian Cinema in Mumbai over the weekend. In the post, Kartik, Karan Johar, Imtiaz Ali and Dinesh Vijan pose for a selfie and PM Modi's back faces their camera. "Losers' backfie with the Honorable PM," read the caption.
