At the expo, Minister Thakur said his aim was to make India a hub of content creation that can generate “millions of jobs” in the country and also cater to global demand. During a conversation with the Bollywood star, he acknowledged the contribution of the Indian film industry that has left “a great impact” on the people of other countries.
“India is a land of storytelling…India should be the hub. And, I personally feel, my aim in the next few years is that India should be the content sub-continent of the world,” Thakur said.
“What we tell, can travel the world so easily now,” Ranveer said in agreement.
During the interaction, the actor earned hoots and cheers when he praised SS Rajamouli‘s latest release ‘RRR’. “Just look at RRR for example. It is beating all the Bollywood films at the box office. It is such a proud moment for us,” he said as he went on to sing the chorus of the hit song ‘Naatu Naatu’.
