Prime Minister Narendra Modi has enjoyed a significant fan following from Bollywood stars since he took charge. Be it openly supporting him for the second term during the recent elections, the star-studded selfie that had taken the Internet by storm, or biopics in multiple mediums, the celebrities have not shied away from expressing their admiration for the Prime Minister. PM Modi’s recent visit to the United States of America similarly sparked a feeling of pride in the B-Town celebrities, not just about their PM, but also as an Indian. Several stars got emotional with the thunderous response given to PM Modi by the 50,000-strong crowd at the ‘Howdy Modi’ event held at the NRG Stadium in Houston on Sunday. One among them was Rishi Kapoor, who not just wished PM Modi and President of the United States Donald Trump for a constructive meeting, but expressed his pride about the Indo-American community that gathered at the event and pride in being an Indian. PM Modi, not just acknowledged the veteran actor’s encouragement, but was even aware about Rishi Kapoor undergoing treatment in the USA. The Prime Minister stated that they missed meeting each other only by a few days. The PM also wished Rishi Kapoor a speedy recovery, and hoped for his active participation on social media.
PM Narendra Modi replied to Rishi Kapoor, “Rishi Ji, thanks for your enthusiastic encouragement. We just missed each other by a few days since you recently left for India from the USA. I pray for your good health. Looking forward to greater participation of yours on social media. @chintskap"
Earlier, as the ‘Howdy Modi’ chants took not just India and USA but the entire world by storm, Rishi Kapoor had tweeted, “#howdymodi “Go Modi” - “Go Trump” - Houston, US. Proud of our being. Proud of the community. Proud of India.”
Rishi Kapoor was undergoing treatment for cancer in the USA since late last year. The 'Agneepath' star returned to India just a few days ago after successful treatment.
Several other celebrities like Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar, Karan Johar, Anil Kapoor, Anupam Kher, Randeep Hooda, Vivek Oberoi, Simi Garewal, Ashoke Pandit, had praised the brilliant partnership of India-USA and their heads of state, PM Modi and USA President Donald Trump.
