PM Modi was talking about the hardwork an actor / artist has to go through, while addressing the audience he mentioned about the superstar and said, "People only see an actor, they don't know what exactly goes behind becoming one. There are people in the entertainment industry, in the technical department, creative department, or to that matter event performers are an institution in themselves and still to maintain themselves is a task. We like it when we see Jeetendra well maintained but obviously he's out in a lot of hardwork to be like this. But a common man doesn't know the hardship he has been through."
