"He celebrates Diwali with jawans," Anupam Kher added.

Also, Kher said that PM Modi is trying his level best to change India's image outside India. 

"We haven't heard of corruption issues since Narendra Modi has assumed charge as PM," the bollywood actor added.

In a veiled attack on Congress, the actor said, "we were ruled by a certain party for a long time, now the people ruling this country for 60 years have been thrashed badly by a different party."

"We had a  PM for the past 10 years who didn't answer anything; now, if anything happens in the country, PM Modi is held responsible," Anupam Kher took a jibe a former PM Manmohan Singh.
