Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been holding meetings with the film fraternity several times this year. The latest big gathering of Bollywood stars at the PM’s behest happened in Delhi on Saturday evening, when several prominent actors came together to discuss one of the most-loved icons of India’s freedom struggle – Mahatma Gandhi.

And the stars did not let go of the opportunity to pose with the PM and take lots of photos, which are being enthusiastically shared all over social media. One particular selfie was clicked by actress Jacqueline Fernandez, and in the frame with the PM were Kangana, Ekta, Ashwini, and Wardah Khan Nadiadwala.
Ekta posted the selfie with the caption, “Women in film with the honorable visionary #primeministerofindia”, while Jacqueline, whose selfie taking skills are well-known, called it an honor.
