Previous meeting was criticized for lack of female representation
In December last year, another delegation of Bollywood personalities including Karan, lyricist Prasoon Joshi, Akshay Kumar, and Ronnie Screwvala, among others met the PM at Raj Bhavan (Mumbai) to discuss the issue of GST on movie tickets.
However, the meeting was slammed by many, including actresses like Dia Mirza, as there were no female personalities present in the delegation to represent the Bollywood industry.
