Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a series of tweets has urged Bollywood celebrities to give a clarion call to the people to participate in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.
On Twitter, Modi urged Bollywood personalities like Karan Johar, Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar, Bhumi Pednekar, Ayushmann Khurrana and Aamir Khan to encourage youngsters to cast their vote.
The PM tweeted, “Dear @akshaykumar, @bhumipednekar and @ayushmannk, The power of a vote is immense and we all need to improve awareness on its importance. Thoda Dum Lagaiye aur Voting ko Ek Superhit Katha banaiye.”
On Tuesday, the Prime Minister had tweeted: “Voting is not only a right but it’s also a duty.
Dear @BeingSalmanKhan and @aamir_khan,
It is time to inspire and motivate youth in your own Andaz to vote so that we can strengthen Apna Democracy & Apna country.”
In January this year, Modi had a meeting with a bunch of new-age actors, led by filmmaker Karan Johar, where stars like Alia Bhatt, Ranveer Singh and Ranbir Kapoor had a discussion with the prime minister about ways to contribute in nation building.
