All Male Btown delegates meet PM Modi, questioned

Twitter reacts on PM Modi meeting all male Bollywood delegates:

Every other day some celebrity or politician is slammed for different reasons. Recently people flaked Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Twitter for meeting an all-male delegation of producers and executives from the film industry. He shared a picture of the meeting on his Twitter handle and people criticized him for not having a single woman in the meeting.

In his post, he referred to the meeting as “fruitful” and “extensive”. He also said that delegation spoke about the “strides being made by the film and entertainment industry. Actors like Akshay Kumar were a part of the interaction. He also shared a post and thanked the PM for his presence and for discussing problems faced by the film industry.

However many filmmakers such as writer Alankrita Srivastava, Saumya Bajjal and many others felt that it was wrong that no women were part of these discussions.

Check out their tweets below:

People who were present in the meeting were Chairman and Managing Director of T-Series- Bhushan Kumar, actor Ajay Devgn and directors Karan Johar, Vikas Sidhwani and others.

This is not the first time the PM has been criticized for holding a meeting with all-male panels. However, some people also said that it is not PM’s call to choose the member of the delegation.
