NEW DELHI: A delegation of young Bollywood stars meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Indian capital New Delhi.

The delegation, which comprised directors and actors, was led by Johar.

"There is a meeting happening with the PM today with people from the film industry, including actors", sources close to the development told PTI. The young generation of the film industry spoke about various issues concerning the Industry and thanked and acknowledged PM for GST change and giving space to the industry to connect.

Modi's last meeting with the film fraternity in December had drawn criticism for not including any female personality.

The "Prime Minister's Squad", as Shetty put it, also included Ekta Kapoor, Ranbir Kapoor, Varun Dhawan, Sidharth Malhotra, Ayushmann Khurrana, Rajkummar Rao, Vicky Kaushal and Bhumi Pednekar.

This was followed by an epic selfie by Karan Johar in which all the celebs posed with the Prime Minister. The 46-year-old director wrote, 'Powerful and timely conversations can bring about change and this was one of what we hope will become a regular conversation.

"As a community, there is a huge interest to contribute to nation building". Because it was not just any other selfie from just any B-town party but a selfie with the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi. There is so much that we want to do. "Thank you so much for your time, Sir!" This dialogue was towards how and in what ways we can do that. "All of us who had the incredible opportunity to interact with u today represent the world's largest film industry & together we would love to inspire & ignite positive changes towards a transformative India".

The meeting, which was organised by Karan Johar, concluded with a group picture of the delegation with PM Modi. Well, besides the junta ka verdict, isn't it wonderful to be appreciated by the Prime Minister himself for your films and well, we can only imagine Rohit's euphoric state of mind.
