Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the National Museum of Indian Cinema in Mumbai on Saturday which was attended by many big Bollywood celebrities including Aamir Khan, Kangana Ranaut, filmmaker Karan Johar and Rohit Shetty, among others.
Kapil Sharma was among the many Bollywood celebrities to meet PM Modi at the inauguration of the National Museum of Indian Cinema (NMIC) in Mumbai. After the two met each other, the comedian tweeted about the meeting and praised PM’s sense of humour.
He shared a picture from their meeting on social media; he was all smiles as he spoke to PM Modi.
Kapil captioned the picture, “It was nice meeting you and great knowing your inspiring ideas about our nation. I must say you have a great sense of humor too!”

Not to forget the time when Kapil took a jibe at PM Modi
To recall, Kapil had once invited controversy after he took a jibe at PM Modi’s ‘Achhe Din‘.
In 2016, Mr. Sharma came under the scanner for asking PM Modi–Yeh hain aapke achhe din? He wrote a series of angst-ridden tweets and alleged that he was asked for a bribe of Rs. 5 lakh by BMC for setting an office in Mumbai.
However, he later clarified that he didn’t blame any political party for corruption in the nation.
Here is his tweet where he tagged PM Modi also
I am paying 15 cr income tax from last 5 year n still i have to pay 5 lacs bribe to BMC office for making my office @narendramodi

Indian Cinema is the mirror of society: PM Modi
While addressing the film personalities after inaugurating the National Museum of Indian Cinema, PM Modi said films have played a huge role in India’s soft power.
“Films can also boost our tourism sector,” he said, noting that foreigners still know little about our country beyond the Taj Mahal.
“The government has started working on single-window clearance system for film shoot permissions. A portal is being put in place, where you only submit required details and within a stipulated time clearances will be given,” he said. PM also urged the filmmakers to make movies on history, science, and tourism to educate youth.
At the start of his speech, the prime minister chanted the popular line from the recently released super hit film Uri: The Surgical Strike. “How is the josh,” he asked, drawing applause.
