Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday interacted with the members of the creative and entertainment world on ways to mark the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi. The interaction was held at 7, Lok Kalyan Marg, New Delhi.
During the session, PM Modi said that Gandhi is synonymous with simplicity. His thoughts reverberate far and wide. He further added that 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,” PM Modi said.
“You all do great work but perhaps you do not know about its global influence! Your work has reached all corners of the world. On the part of the Government, I am happy to help in anyway to ensure maximum impact of your creative initiatives,” PM added.
The session was attended by top Bollywood celebrities including Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Kangana Ranaut, Boney Kapoor and others.
Superstar Aamir Khan heaped lavish praises on PM Modi and said that he wants to appreciate the Prime Minister for thinking about this effort (further popularising the ideals of Bapu). “As creative people, there is much we can do. And, I assure the PM that we will do even more,” he said.
Shah Rukh Khan also expressed his views in the event and thanked PM Modi for bringing all the Bollywood celebrities together, that too for a cause such as this (Mahatma Gandhi).
“I feel we need to re-introduce Gandhi Ji to India and the world,” Shah Rukh said.
