5 months ago Delhi had given nearly 50% seats to AAP...possibly zero this time. Hope the lesson is learnt about not betraying the people!

"On behalf of the entire Indian film fraternity, we congratulate Narendra Modi on the massive victory. We are confident that the Indian film industry will get a new lease of life under the leadership of Narendra Modi,” said Ravi Kottarakara, President of Film Federation of India, which has a footprint across India.
Filmmaker Sudhir Mishra said, "We have to respect the verdict of the people.”
“The change is always good. I am an independent filmmaker and continue to make independent films," he added sharing his views on Modi's victory.
Frank Stehling, MD, PrimeHouse GmbH, who works closely with Indian filmmakers on co-production and re-make rights of films, said "All I can say is that my business partners are optimistic of the change in government in India and it will be business friendly and benefit the industry."
a statement given by the State Department aimed at setting at rest the issue of a visa for Modi, said: "The Prime Minister of India will be welcomed to the United States. As head of government, Mr Modi would be eligible for an A-1 visa."
