A delegation from the Indian Film Industry met Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Delhi today.

The delegation included a majority of the young guns of the industry, Ranveer Singh, Ranbir Kapoor, Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Bhumi Pednekar, Sidharth Malhotra, Ayushmann Khurrana, Rajkummar Rao and Vicky Kaushal. Directors Karan Johar, Ekta Kapoor, Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari and Rohit Shetty were also present during the meeting.

Taking to his Instagram, Karan shared a snap of all of the actors and directors posing with PM Narendra Modi during the meet where they could be seen smiling for the camera.

He captioned his post, "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.

Talking about the positive changes to transform India, he also mentioned that as a community, there is a huge interest of the youth to contribute to build a nation.

"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 46-year-old added.

He also thanked PM Modi for the Goods and Services Tax (GST) reduction in movie ticket prices on behalf of the whole film industry.

The meeting comes weeks after PM Modi met Bollywood producers and discussed issues faced by the industry, which led to the reduction in GST on film tickets by the government. (ANI)
