Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the National Museum of Indian Cinema on Saturday, in the presence of several Bollywood actors, directors and other members of the film fraternity. Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, Union Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore and Central Board of Film Certification chief Prasoon Joshi also marked their attendance at the event. However, it was PM Modi’s speech that stole the limelight, a video of which is currently bombarding the internet. It was ‘How’s the Josh?’ from Vicky Kaushal’s latest outing Uri: The Surgical Strike, which NaMo drew reference from while delivering his speech.
"Today when all of you have come together to take Indians' entertainment industry to new heights, I have a question for all of you. Every generation of stars are present here, and when I am here with the film fraternity, let me put it this way, 'How's the Josh?” asked PM Modi at the gathering at the event. His question was met with a round of applause and amidst which, the crowd shouted out ‘High Sir’.
The Prime Minister also elaborated on the same and further added that this ‘Josh’ is something the whole world is talking about and has a huge contribution in shaping a new India.
An elated Vicky and his co-star in the film Yami Gautam took to social media and called NaMo’s reference to their film ‘an honour’.
Uri is based on the surgical strikes carried out by the Indian armed forces in Pakistan in 2016. The film also has a character based on PM Modi, essayed by actor Rajit Kapur.
