5 highlights from PM Narendra Modi’s candid chat with Akshay Kumar
Indian election season is in full swing and already first three phases are done and dusted. The Lok Sabha elections will get over by May 19 and the results will be out on May 23. Indian PM Narendra Modi is a master communicator and a brilliant strategist and had a fun interaction with none other than Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar (no surprises there). The two talked about various non-political issues. Let’s check out 5 things PM Modi shared with Akshay Kumar.
Narendra Modi never thought he would become Prime Minister of India: “I never thought I’d become the Prime Minister. A common person doesn’t think that. The kind of background I come from, even if I got a simple job, my mother would have been distributing ladoos to neighbours,” he said.
PM Modi follows Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna on Twitter: “I follow you (Akshay Kumar) and Twinkle Khanna ji on Twitter. From the way she targets me, I understand there must be peace in your family life. All her anger must have been spent on me, and so you must be feeling at peace,” he said.
West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee sends PM Modi gifts: As we all know, there is no love lost between Mamata Banerjee and Narendra Modi. The duo are very passionate leaders and wear their heart on the sleeves. PM Modi, in his typical style, praised didi and said, “People will be surprised and I should not say this in the election season, but Mamata didi sends me gifts every year. She still sends me one or two kurtas that she picks herself a year.”
Mahatma Gandhi inspires our beloved PM Modi: This should not come as a surprise as Narendra Modi had launched a cleanliness campaign as soon as he assumed office in 2014. The 68-year-old leader said I have always been inspired been by Mahatma Gandhi ji. Cleanliness is also important to promote tourism.
PM Modi is also a human after all and likes to have fun: “I also read (Twitter posts) and have fun. I enjoy them (memes). I look less at Modi; I look at the creativity. The biggest benefit of social media to me is that I can understand the common man’s thoughts,” he said.
