When Aamir Khan, Kangana Ranaut met PM Modi over dinner
New Delhi, Feb 15: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday hosted a grand dinner for around 800 people at the Turf Club in South Mumbai, which included top politicians, diplomats from several countries and industry leaders.
Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan and Kangana Ranaut also attended the dinner.
The high-profile event, which was a strict no-media affair, was organised after Modi launched the mega Make in India (MII) week here earlier yesterday.
Wading into the "intolerance" debate, the 'Ghajini' star had kicked up a controversy last year by saying he has been "alarmed" by a number of incidents and his wife Kiran Rao even suggested that they should probably leave India.
His comments evoked sharp criticism from ruling BJP and also the NDA government. Later, the 50-year-old actor's contract as brand ambassador for the government's Incredible India campaign was not renewed by the Tourism Ministry.
Kangana, 28, had recently said freedom of speech in the country does not mean one can insult anybody and stated that actors should be more careful with what they say.
The 'Make in India' event is aimed at attracting investments into the manufacturing sector and showcasing success stories at a specially-created venue at the Bandra-Kurla Complex in Mumbai.
