Prakash Javedekar, the newly appointed Minister of Information and Broadcasting, is keen to get a better understanding of the workings of the Mumbai film industry. On August 31, Javedkar, who has taken over from Rajyavardhan Rathore, will be involved in a meet-and-greet session with film industry mavens.

As per a government source, Javedkar will be monitoring and interacting closely with the film industry. “Cinema and its denizen are very close to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s heart. Since his second term as prime minister, Modi has been interacting regularly with representatives of the film industry. Javedkar is expected to seek out more avenues for a healthy and productive interaction with the film industry,” says the source.

Prasoon Joshi, the current chairperson of the censor board, has been given the responsibility of inviting the movers and shakers to meet the new IB Minister. Invitees for the session are Farhan Akhtar, Karan Johar, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar, Kangana Ranaut, Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh, Kareena Kapoor Khan, and Saif Ali Khan, among others.
