Bollywood meets Modi, takes home a serious message, but…

If Bollywood translates his message to action, will they come up with a history-defying Manikarnika or a present-falsifying Mission Mangal?


Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday discussed the initiative of Bollywood actors and filmmakers, including Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan who often complain of “growing intolerance” in the country under the current regime, to celebrate the 150th birth of Mahatma Gandhi. Further, the prime minister said that India was ready to host an international entertainment summit.

The Bollywood contingent that met with the prime minister comprised Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, Kangana Ranaut, Jacqueline Fernandez, director Rajkumar Hirani, Rajkumar Santoshi, Ashwini Iyer Tiwari, Nitesh Tiwari and producers Ekta Kapoor, Boney Kapoor and Jayantilal Gada.

On the occasion, the Prime Minister told the celebrities that they were doing good work but perhaps they were not aware of its global impact.

Actor Aamir Khan said, “We can do a lot as creative people.”

Shah Rukh Khan, in his speech, said that Gandhi’s ideas needed to be presented before India anew as much as the world. Shah Rukh Khan said, “We are known as representatives of the entertainment world but you have added a sense of responsibility towards it by joining us in popularising Gandhi’s ideas.”

Shah Rukh, known for his funny bone, did not miss the opportunity to quip, ‘Thank you, sir, for inviting us here. Usually, actors do not come on time and never come together at one place but because of this film, because of you and Gandhiji, we have come together. Aamir and I hugged, too; love is growing between us.” This had reference to his sweet-and-sour relationship with Aamir who had once said he had named his pet dog “Shah Rukh”.

Meanwhile, many other stars like Ekta Kapoor, Rakul Preet Singh, Varun Sharma, producer Bhushan Kumar, Kapil Sharma sent tweets to the prime minister to thank him for the initiative. Modi, on his part, made sure to respond to their comments and convey encouraging messages.

In a conversation with Bollywood stars at his official residence in Delhi, Prime Minister Modi said India was celebrating its 75th Independence Day in 2022. The entertainment industry should show inspiring stories of the country’s freedom struggle from 1857 to 1947 and the country’s development story from 1947 to 2022.

If the celebrities translate the urge of Prime Minister Modi to action, it is to be seen whether they come up with history-defying Manikarnika or present-falsifying Mission Mangal.
