Honorable Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently hosted the Indian film fraternity and also launched a tribute video 'Change Within' to mark the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.

While Bollywood stars like Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Kangana were invited, many leading South Superstars were ignored. Interestingly, veteran singer SP Balasubramanyam was also present at the event but while he was entering the venue, he was asked to leave his mobile phone outside.

"I am grateful to Ramoji Raoji, (Eenadu), because of whom I was able to attend a reception hosted by our Hon. Prime Minister at his home on the 29th of Oct. Upon entering the premises, we were asked to leave our cellphones with the security personnel and were given tokens for the same. But I was bewildered at the STARS taking selfies with the PM on that day. THINGS THAT MAKE YOU GO HMMM?????", wrote the veteran singer on Facebook.
