A courtesy meeting turned into a very uplifting dialogue. Bollywood's representatives spoke about how the industry has always played an important role in building a better nation, a better society through entertainment. The discussion also involved various issues concerning the industry. They thanked and acknowledged the Prime Minister for making changes in the GST and giving space to the industry to connect.

Karan Johar took to his Instagram account to share a photo from their meet. He captioned the photo: "Powerful and timely conversations can bring about change and this was one of what we hope will become a regular conversation. Meeting the Honorable Prime Minister @narendramodi today was an incredible opportunity. As a community, there is a huge interest to contribute to nation building. There is so much that we want to do. And can do and this dialogue was towards how and what ways we can do that. When the youngest country (in demography) joins hands with the largest movie industry in the world, we hope to be a force to reckon with. Together we would love to inspire and ignite positive changes to a transformative India. The film industry would also like to send a huge thanks for the GST reduction in movie ticket prices that was implemented recently!"
