Kolkata [India], Nov. 14 (ANI): Backing the Centre's step of demonetisation, which has caused a massive upheaval across the nation, ace music composer Anu Malik asserted that any step taken by Prime Minister Narendra Modi was with the intention of the betterment of the nation.

Malik, who is in Kolkata for the audition of the new season of Indian Idol, expressed his support towards the Prime Minister, saying that any step taken by him was taken keeping the nation in mind.

"He is a great Prime Minister and what he has done for the poor people in laudable," Malik told ANI here.

Malik has joined the ranks of a large section of Bollywood who have endorsed the brave decision by the Centre.

Aamir Khan, whose film Dangal is all set to hit the theatres this December, stated that he would not mind if the business of his film gets affected by demonetisation as he is looking at the larger picture

''During such situations, we should think about what is good for the country. People are facing some issues, but we should focus more on the long-term benefits of this drive. Even if this drive affects the business of my film, I would have no issues with it," he said.

Shah Rukh Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Rishi Kapoor, Madhur Bhandarkar, Karan Johar, Anurag Kashyap, Farhan Akhtar are some of the few big names from the Hindi film industry who have supported the Prime Minister.

However, chaos continued to ensue across the nation as several citizens are complaining of facing massive inconvenience due to demonetisation and not being able to run their daily lives. (ANI)
