On the occasion of the 150th Birth Anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi interacted with the Leading personalities & cultural icons of the Film industry. Many industry biggies like Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Rajkumar Hirani, Sonam Kapoor, Jacqueline Fernandez, Kangana Ranaut, and some others have graced the event.
Although Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s initiative to bring in a change in the society that we live in is appreciative, but it has received severe backlash from the south. Many felt that the meeting would be more meaningful if any cultural icons from the south film industry are invited.
Ram Charan’s wife Upasana is the one who firstly spoken about it on a public platform. The actress has taken social media as a platform to express her displeasure. She questioned PM Modi why the Southern Film Industry neglected in achieving this common goal. She posted “Dearest @narendramodi Ji. We in the South of INDIA admire you & are Proud to have you as our Prime Minister. With all due respect, we felt that the representation of Leading personalities & cultural icons was limited only to Hindi Artists, and The South Film Industry was neglected. I express my feelings with pain & hope it’s taken in the right spirit. Jai Hind.”
Many people agreed with the views expressed by Upasana on social media. Let us wait and see how Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will react to this post. Stay tuned for this space for more interesting and latest updates.
