Major Bollywood stars such as Ranveer Singh, Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan met with Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi, today. He said the dialogue was about the ways in which the film industry can contribute to nation building. "Toge-ther we would love to insp-ire and ignite positive cha-nges to a transformative India", he added.

Johar uploaded a selfie with Modi and the rest of the group on Instagram and described the meeting as "an incredible opportunity".

Karan also shared another picture of himself with PM Modi and captioned it, "Thank you for meeting us today sir!"

The delegation of young actors and directors including Alia Bhatt, Ayushmann Khurana, Ranbir Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal, Ekta Kapoor, Rohit Shetty and Karan Johar were spotted at Delhi airport this morning.

EPL: Aaron Ramsey takes pay cut to leave Arsenal
Wales worldwide Ramsey joined Arsenal from Cardiff in 2008 and has scored 52 goals in his 252 Premier League games. The 28-year-old will join this summer on a free transfer after 10 seasons with Arsenal .

But the photo did not go down well with social media users as many activists and journalists called them "spineless" for posing with a prime minister, whose controversial policy decisions had caused a lot of distress to a large section of the Indian society.

The director-producer also thanked the prime minister for the GST reduction in movie ticket prices. As Alia and Ranbir were making their way to the vehicle, excited fans surrounded them making it hard for them to pass through. He was also seen pretty alert when a few of the fans tried to get a bit close to click selfies with them. Believe me, our entertainment industry has a tremendous amount to give to the nation. The PM very graciously told the delegation how much of a change and progress they can bring to the nation. I am surprised that this meeting didn't happen earlier.

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. "We (the film industry) are going to be taken seriously by the government".
