The message read: "A humble request if you can send an email saying I will vote for Narendra Modi, at the below-given email. It shall be great. Just mention your name and creative designation in that below your message

"We are getting maximum number of people to digitally get 1,000-plus people from film industry in this campaign to answer the artistes... from the film industry (who say) that we will not vote for Modi. If you know a few creative people from the film industry who are Modi followers, kindly forward this message to them."

The message was sent by Dhotre, one of the activists of (MNCA).

Asked about the campaign, Dhotre told IANS: "I am the of All India Workers Association, an independent body. I believe in the ideology of BJP and yes, I am urging everyone in the film industry to vote for Modiji because I believe that he is the only leader that we need in our country."

"Hundreds of actors started their campaign against Modiji. They are telling people not to vote BJP. why should we sit silently? We also then should be telling people to vote for him."
