The top actors of Tamil cinema, Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan, have been invited for the May 30 swearing-in of Narendra Modi as Prime Minister for a second term says source.
Sources close to both actors agreed the two were invited to Mr. Modi’s swearing-in scheduled on May 30 but did not divulge if the veterans would participate.
Kamal Haasan's political party Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) had made its electoral debut this Lok Sabha polls. Mr. Rajinikanth is yet to formalize his December 2017 announcement on taking the political plunge.
Modi is the first BJP leader to have got re-elected as prime minister and that too with a majority for a full five-year term. So far, only two former prime ministers - Congress leaders Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi – have been re-elected in the past.
BJP’s Atal Bihari Vajpayee was also re-elected as PM but his first term had lasted only for one year and seven months.
