Actress Dia Mirza has raised concerns over the absence of women members in the delegation that represented the Hindi film fraternity that called upon Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Some of the prominent faces of Bollywood, including the likes of Karan Johar, Akshay Kumar, Bhushan Kumar, Siddharth Roy Kapur, and Prasoon Joshi met the Prime Minister to pitch for lower and uniform rates of GST for the entertainment industry in India.

The actress questioned Akshay Kumar, who was present among the ones who attended the meeting, over ‘zero representation’ of women from the industry, on Twitter.

“This is wonderful! Is there a reason why there were no women in this room,” Dia posted.

Following her tweet, a social media user questioned Dia why everything has to centre on the ‘competition’ between men and women.

“It’s not about competition! It’s such a fundamental thing. If we hope to achieve equality we must be included in all conversations! Of course women are doing well. We are doing well despite the fact that we are excluded. And doesn’t that need to change?” she replied.

The meeting, held in Mumbai on Tuesday, had an all men presence.

According to a PIB statement, the delegation gave Modi an overview of the vast growth potential of the media and entertainment industry in India.

It also apprised the Prime Minister of the potentials of the industry and said that this sector is poised to contribute in a significant way towards the Prime Minister’s vision for making India a five trillion dollar economy in the near future.
