Bollywood delegation meets Narendra Modi, discusses nation-building

Farhan Akhtar and SRK has worked together in Don and Don 2

Karan Johar, who made a trip to the National Capital as part of a Bollywood delegation to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently, made a video inside the star-studded flight, featuring the likes of Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Ranbir Kapoor, Varun Dhawan, Ayushmann Khurrana, Sidharth Malhotra, Rajkummar Rao, Ashwini Iyer Tiwari and Ekta Kapoor (phew!) The video begins with KJo greeting Ranveer with his signature: "Moooorniing!"

The delegation clicks a selfie at the airport.

The caption further read, "As a community, there is a huge interest to contribute to nation building". It was an honour! and we are grateful for your support towards the film industry! "Toge-ther we would love to insp-ire and ignite positive cha-nges to a transformative India", he added. He Instagrammed this photo of him shaking hands with the PM and captioned it, "Thank you for meeting us today sir!"

Producer Mahaveer Jain also said, "Getting the new breed of prominent actors and filmmakers to meet PM Modi Saab was an idea initiated by Karan Johar and I. It took me no time to convince the delegation to pay this historic flying visit to Delhi".

"Jaadoo ki Jhappi! Joy to meet the Honourable Prime Minister of our great nation", tweeted the 'Padmaavat' star.

This was followed by an epic selfie by Karan Johar in which all the celebs posed with the Prime Minister. As Alia and Ranbir were making their way to the auto, excited fans surrounded them making it hard for them to pass through. Many of them also asked why the Indian filmstars lacked spine to criticise the government like their counterparts in Hollywood routinely did.

The meeting comes weeks after the Prime Minister met Bollywood producers and discussed issues faced by the industry, which led to the reduction in the Goods and Services Tax on film tickets by the government.

About teaming up with Alia again for Kalank, Varun had earlier told Hindustan Times, "It was important for us to choose the right film to come back as a pair".
