  • PM Modi shared a light moment with Bollywood star Akshay Kumar on Wednesday in a 'non-political interview'

Hours after the interview of PM Modi with Akshay Kumar, Congress general secretary for UP East criticised the Prime Minister in her election rally. While the Bollywood actor called the interview as a 'breather' amidst the heated up election campaigning, Priyanka Vadra attacked PM Modi by saying that he only talks with celebrities.

While adressing an election rally in Uttar Pradesh, she said: “You may have seen him interviewing with big, noteworthy actors but you will never see him with people. I went to Varanasi recently, and I came to know that in the past five years, the Prime Minister hasn’t gone to any village.”

She added: "PM talks sweetly with the actors. Do you want a leader who only talks on TV with the leaders or those who come to you and talk about famers, talks about you, talks about how he will help you?"
