MUMBAI: Union minister Nitin Gadkari today met Bollywood actor Salman Khan and his father and noted script-writer Salim Khan, veteran actor Nana Patekar, and Yes Bank CEO Rana Kapoor at their residences here as part of the BJP's "contact for support" campaign.

The former BJP president presented some booklets highlighting the achievements of the Modi government in the past four years to them.

"Met Sri Salim Khan ji and Salman Khan as part of 'Sampark for Samarthan' campaign.

"Have discussed the achievement and initiative of Modi government in last 4 years,"the Union minister tweeted after the meeting.

The "Sampark se Samarthan" (contact for support) campaign was launched to mark the four years of the Modi government last month.
