All the celebrities in the event were seen clicking selfies with Prime Minister Modi. However, Bollywood’s popular director and writer Imtiaz Ali who was present at the event couldn't take a selfie but took an interesting photo and shared on his Instagram handle with an even quirky caption.
Ali shared the photo on his Twitter account, where he can be seen striking a pose for a selfie with Kartik Aaryan, Karan Johar, and posted it with the caption 'Losers’ backfie with the honorable PM!'
But in a few hours, Modi replied to Ali's tweet saying, “Not losers but Rockstars! No selfie Jab We Met but there will always be another occasion. :)”
The tweet went viral and received many comments from netizens.
Earlier, Modi, at the event, had addressed the audience at the museum inauguration with Uri’s famous dialogue, “How’s the josh,” as Bollywood celebs replied, “High, sir.”
Comedian Kapil Sharma was also present. He clicked a picture with Modi and tweeted: "Respected pm Sh @narendramodi ji,it was nice meeting u n great knowing ur inspiring ideas and progressive views about our film industry and our nation. N sir I must say u have a great sense of humor too! (sic)".
On that, the prime minister responded to the tweet saying, "When (Kapil Sharma) appreciates somebody's humour, it sure makes that person happy and I am no exception".
Earlier this month, Modi had met a delegation including Johar, Ranveer Singh, Ranbir Kapoor, Rohit Shetty, Varun Dhawan, Sidharth Malhotra, Alia Bhatt, Rajkummar Rao, Ayushmann Khurrana, Vicky Kaushal, Bhumi Pednekar, Ekta Kapoor and Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari.
