Meanwhile who is who of Indian cinema, including Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Sonam Kapoor, kangana ranaut and several others were present at the meeting to promote Mahatma Gandhi and Gandhism. Furthermore entrepreneur and Ram Charan's wife Upasana Kamineni, however, felt that there was no representation from the south and stated that the south film industry was completely neglected.
When sharing a photo of PM narendra modi with Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan, Upasana wrote a note explaining her pain. Apparently her post reads, "Dearest @narendramodi ji. We in the south of india admire you & are Proud to have you as our Prime Minister. With all due respect, we felt that the representation of Leading personalities & cultural icons was limited only to Hindi Artists and The south Film Industry was neglected. I express my feelings with pain & hope it’s taken in the right spirit. jai Hind".
Moreover the only celebrity who represented the South was popular Telugu producer Dil Raju. Perhaps on the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, the #ChangeWithin initiative was organized to promote his ideologies and the focus of this initiative was to invite film personalities encouraging them to make films and television shows that speak about Gandhism.
