The film industry would also like to send a huge thanks for the GST reduction in movie ticket prices that was implemented recently! Very grateful to him for the reduction of gst which will be a big boost to the economics of our film industry.

The meeting ended with a group picture of the entire Bollywood delegation with the Prime Minister. As Alia and Ranbir were making their way to the auto, excited fans surrounded them making it hard for them to pass through. Believe me, our entertainment industry has a tremendous amount to give to the nation.

"They have the power to influence the youth". But now the process has started.

The meeting comes weeks after PM Modi met Bollywood producers and discussed issues faced by the industry.

About teaming up with Alia again for Kalank, Varun had earlier told Hindustan Times, "It was important for us to choose the right film to come back as a pair".
