Producer Mahaveer Jain has said that PM Narendra Modi wants the entertainment industry to be a more proactive part of the process of nation-building. Jain, along with filmmaker Karan Johar, initiated the move for a delegation of young Bollywood talent to meet Modi.
The delegation included actors Ranbir Kapoor, Ranveer Singh, Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Sidharth Malhotra, Vicky Kaushal, Ayushmann Khurrana, Bhumi Pednekar, Rajkummar Rao, producers Ekta Kapoor, Karan Johar and Mahaveer Jain and directors Ashwini Iyer Tiwari and Rohit Shetty.
The agenda was more freewheeling than specific. And the mood was buoyant. The delegates who can't stop singing the PM's praise say "nothing specific" was discussed.
