Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Kangana Ranaut, Sonam Kapoor and others meet PM Narendra Modi in Delhi

-

The film industry members were invited at Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s residence in the Capital on Saturday. The focus was to talk about the shows and movies that have popularized Mahatma Gandhi and Gandhism on the occasion of the 150th birth anniversary of the Father of the Nation.

“Gandhi is synonymous with simplicity. His thoughts reverberate far and wide. The power of creativity is immense, and it is essential to harness this spirit of creativity for our nation. Several people from the world of films and television have been doing great work when it comes to popularising the ideals of Mahatma Gandhi,” noted Prime Minister Modi.

The occasion saw several eminent stars including Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Kangana Ranaut, Sonam Kapoor, Rajkumar Hirani, Kapil Sharma, Rakul Preet Singh, Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, Jacqueline Fernandez, Imtiaz Ali, Ekta Kapoor, Anurag Basu, Bhushan Kumar and Boney Kapoor among others.

Shah Rukh Khan talked about the need to make stories on Gandhi and said, “I would like to thank the Prime Minister for bringing us all together, that too for a cause such as this. I feel we need to re-introduce Gandhi ji to India and the world. The film industry can get self-obsessed and it is important we create work that is not only about business.”

“It was a wonderful interaction we had with the Prime Minister today. He was very inspiring, very warm and very deep in what he had to say. I want to appreciate the PM for thinking about this effort. As creative people, there is much we can do, and I assure the PM that we will do even more,” said Aamir Khan.

Kangana Ranaut thanked PM Modi for recognizing the power of the Indian film industry. “Modi ji is the first Prime Minister who is so inclusive of art and artistes and the film industry. Nobody has recognised the soft power of art and artistes in the country before. From the bottom of my heart and on behalf of the film industry, I thank the Prime Minister,” said Kangana.

Jacqueline Fernandez said, “It was an extreme honour be in the presence of PM Modi ji, and also to have a Prime Minister who is so willing to lend a helping hand to the film fraternity”
