Man celebrities of the B-town like SRK, Aamir Khan, Kangana Ranaut, Ekta Kapoor, Rajkumar Hirani, Kapil Sharma, Jassie Gill, Jacqueline Fernandez Sajid Nadiawala and many others visited Pm Narendra Modi. The celebrities met with PM for a new initiative named “Change Within” and the event was held on October 19.
The main emphasis was put on inviting the entire film industry to make films which would spread the Gandhian philosophes and Gandhism even more. This was especially held to mark 150th birthday of the Father of the Nation.
Prime Minister Modi said, “Gandhi is synonymous with simplicity. His thoughts reverberate far and wide. The power of creativity is immense, and it is essential to harness this spirit of creativity for our nation. Several people from the world of films and television have been doing great work when it comes to popularising the ideals of Mahatma Gandhi.”
