Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan today hailed the Centre’s ‘Make in India’ programme, terming it as the most important initiative by Prime Minister Narendra Modi that is generating jobs in the country.

“Make in India is perhaps the single most important initiative by our honourable Prime Minister Narendra Modi, which propels companies in India and abroad to make it in our own country and our own land, thereby creating job opportunities, skill enhancement,” the actor told reporters.

Shah Rukh, 50, was speaking at the launch of BJP leader Shaina NC’s coffee table book, ‘Movers and Makers’ which is a tribute to Make in India.

The ‘Fan’ star said the introduction of new technological enhancement through Make in India will be beneficial for several generations.

“For me, the biggest turn on is the introduction of new technology, which I believe is going to create a new era for our generation and generations to come,” he said.

Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis termed the book as the best documentation of the seven-day event, ‘Make in India Week’, held in Mumbai in February this year and said he became nostalgic while reading the book.

“While going through the book I became a little nostalgic because those seven days for us were very challenging and encouraging as well. I feel this documentation of the events is very important because after the event is over new people come to us. This is the best thing we can present them. This coffee table book, if presented to a new investor, he understands the strength of Maharashtra and what
it stands for,” he said.

Shaina said several people worked hard for the event which was not just an initiative but a vision.

“We must realise the amount of people who have put together this mammoth project called the ‘Make in India Week’ and under that we had a ‘Magnetic Maharashtra’ stall which was visited by lakhs of people. This is not just about MOUs but about the vision,” she said.

State Industries Minister Subhash Desai and MoS for Industries and Mining Pravin Pote Patil were also present at the event.

    "Make in India" has been going on for 69 years. Just because someone organises a seminar does not make it more important than the work done by hundreds and thousands of others, quite successfully, for decades. Are there no industries in India? What we see expressed here is pure Modi sychohancy!

      Bob, agree that import subsution, core industries, PSU's have an older origin. However, since 2004, we lost the focus on manufacturing and instead favoured imports of industrial goods on a large scale. This has caused widespread closure of manufacturing businesses and consequent loss of skills, and job creation . You can think of 'make in India ' initiative as a way to rejuvenate manufacturing. Let us all support it regardless of our political leanings, for sake of stronger India ...

        He has never been bad or have talked of India being intolerant. You guys need to do your research before blaming him as he had never said such a thing. You guys just read some stupid news or face book comments and then started critissing him.
