Speaking over a score from his movie Swades, Shahrukh Khan said, "The new Parliament building. The new house of our hopes. A home for the people who uphold our Constitution where 140 crore Indians become one family.
May this new home be so big that it has a place for everyone from every village, city and every corner of the country. May the arms of the new home embrace people from all castes, creeds and religions."
He captioned the video, "A new Parliament building for a New India but with the age-old dream of glory for India," to which PM Modi replied, "Beautifully expressed!"
PM Modi also retweeted the video that was shared by Akshay Kumar with his voice-over.
