“Today when all of you have come together to take Indians' entertainment industry to new heights, I have a question for all of you. Every generation of stars are present here, and when I am here with the film fraternity, let me put it this way, 'How's the Josh?” asked PM Modi at the gathering at the event. His question was met with a round of applause and amidst which, the crowd shouted out ‘High Sir’.

Meanwhile, actor Aamir Khan said to ANI: “It was really wonderful to hear honourable Prime Minister; he spoke in such a positive way about the industry. His expectation, his vision, and his thoughts about the creative field and people involved in this were good. It’s really encouraging to hear that.”
Director and producer Karan Johar said that the Prime Minister suggested the fraternity to organise a “Global Film Summit” on the lines of “World Economic Summit” at Davos. He said: “His speech was exceptionally inspiring. It was full of hope for Indian film fraternity. The fact is that he addressed the impact of Indian cinema and how it travels. He even said that we should create a platform like Davos in India itself that is a one-stop shop for business, entertainment and everything. He was laced with a great sense of humour.”
