Director Karan Johar had organized the meeting of young, celebrated talent from the Hindi film industry with PM Narendra Modi.

Mr Johar later took to Instagram to share a group selfie with Mr Modi.

Meeting the Honorable Prime Minister @narendramoditoday was an incredible opportunity. He said the dialogue was about the ways in which the film industry can contribute to nation building. There is so much that we want to do. It was an honour! and we are grateful for your support towards the film industry!

Interesting thing is that Karan Johar who led the producers meeting also came to lead to the actor's meeting as well with PM Modi.

"Jaadoo ki Jhappi! Joy to meet the Honourable Prime Minister of our great nation", tweeted the 'Padmaavat' star. He was very receptive about our concerns which was honestly very cool. "Ps- I missed eye contact here cause I was taking facing #jaihind", wrote actor Varun Dhawan on his social media handle.

Ace director Rohit Shetty also shared, "Quite a cool feeling when The Prime Minister himself appreciates you for making films on the Police Force".
