Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath recently visited Mumbai where he met Bollywood celebrities including Jackie Shroff, Suniel Shetty, Kailash Kher, and Sonu Nigam. 


Adityanath held a meeting with all of them and extended subsidies to filmmakers to come and shoot their films in the state of UP. While Suniel Shetty asked the CM to help stop the Boycott Bollywood trend, Jackie Shroff was seen welcoming the chief minister in his signature style and urged him to reduce popcorn prices at cinema halls.


In a viral video, Jackie Shroff can be seen standing up from his seat to welcome CM Yogi Adityanath. He says, “Welcome to Mumbai, Kabhi bhi ghar ka khana chaiye toh hukum karna, Mil jayega (If you ever want home-cooked food, just let me know and I will send it).”


“Please reduce the price of the popcorn sir. In the theatre, they charge Rs 500 for popcorn. We are making films, but what is the use if no one comes to watch the film?”, Jackie added.
