Earlier in the day, a picture from their meeting with PM Modi was shared by Karan Johar. He also shared details about the discussion they had during the meeting.
Take a look.
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!
Meanwhile, in Uri, Vicky Kaushal plays the role of an army officer, who leads a covert military operation, after the Uri Base Camp in Jammu & Kashmir was attacked. He co-stars with Yami Gautam, who has been cast as an intelligence officer.
