Amazon Prime, the entertainment arm, has signed up with majority of Indian production houses and stars for dedicated series and shows.


He was also reported to be meeting corporate honchos as part of the financial capital-leg of his meeting, but details on the same could not be ascertained.

Bollywood stars and directors, including Riteish Deshmukh and his wife Genelia, Vidya Balan and her husband Siddharth Roy Kapoor, Arshad Warsi, Rajkummar Rao, Kamal Haasan, Ashutosh Gowariker, Manoj Baypayee, Sayani Gupta, Farhan Akhtar, Shibani Dandekar, Zoya Akhtar, Ali Fazal, Pankaj Tripathi, Kabir Khan, Mini Mathur and others attended the event.

Bezos had on Wednesday made a commitment to invest USD 1 billion in India over the next few years, calling it as India's decade which we have entered in.

However, Union Commerce Minister Piyush Goyal on Thursday said that Amazon has not done India a favour by committing the money.
