What Priyanka said
Priyanka took to X (formerly Twitter) on Wednesday evening and reposted a picture of the Thank You For Coming cast posing at the new Parliament building and wrote, “Now we have movie promotions happening in the parliament too. All that is left to do is for I&B ministry to tweet and promote their upcoming movie Thank you for Coming (emoji). Very krantikari (rebellious).”
Thank You For Coming cast’s Parliament visit
The picture is from earlier in the day when the cast visited the new Parliament building during the ongoing session. They even shared their views about the Women’s Reservation Bill. Shehnaaz told news agency ANI, “It is a great step. I am a woman. If we are given rights and equal treatment, even parents too will support girls. I come from a small village. The girls are married off so that they get settled. But after this, if girls and boys are treated as equals, a lot of things in the country will change.”
Besides the cast of Thank You For Coming, actors Kangana Ranaut and Esha Gupta also visited the new Parliament building earlier in the day and were seen greeting Anurag Thakur.
