BJP has tweeted a video of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's freewheeling meeting with Bollywood actors, producers and directors at his official residence in Delhi last week.
The actors including Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Sonam Kapoor and Jacqueline Fernandez, are seen in the video taking selfies with PM Modi and listening to him speak inside a hall, where on a screen a projector plays an introduction to the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.

"I want to hear, if you have any suggestions to give, I want to hear from you," PM Modi told the audience of Bollywood personalities inside a packed hall.
Aamir Khan, in a dark blue jacket, took the microphone and stood beside PM Modi.
"Gandhi ji's wisdom is so great and deep... It is very important to put his thoughts and ideas in front of the world, in front of young people. Every creative person through their work can contribute to nation-building," Aamir Khan.
Next came Shah Rukh Khan's turn to speak. "Thank you sir for calling us here. We actors never come on time, and especially, never get together in one place," Shah Rukh Khan said, drawing laughs. "I truly believe Gandhi ji needs to be reloaded. Gandhi ji 2.0 is what we need," he added.
Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change. Thank you @narendramodi ji for guiding us to d path of #ChangeWithin and our fraternity stands united & feels responsible in this journey of nation building. https://t.co/fATEtBKtSA @PMOIndia— AANAND L RAI (@aanandlrai) October 22, 2019
During the interaction, the PM said that as India celebrates its 75th Independence Day in 2022, the entertainment industry should showcase the inspiring stories of the country’s freedom struggle from 1857 to 1947 and the nation’s growth story from 1947 to 2022.
