Imran Khan invites Aamir Khan, Kapil Dev, Sunil Gavaskar for oath-taking ceremony
Islamabad, Aug 1 (IBNS): Pakistan's Prime Minister-elect and Chairperson of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Party Imran Khan has invited actor Aamir Khan and former cricketers Sunil Gavaskar, Kapil Dev and Navjot Singh Sidhu to his oath-taking ceremony on Aug 11, media reports said.
Imran Khan's PTI emerged as the largest political party in the National Assembly of Pakistan in the recently conducted general elections.
His party is in talks with other political parties and independent candidates to form a coalition government at the centre as PTI is short of the required number.
Earlier reports suggested that Imran Khan was also considering inviting leaders of SAARC countries including Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
However, these reports were later refuted by the PTI.
Narendra Modi on Monday spoke to Imran Khan and congratulated him over his win in the country's general elections.
PM Modi expressed hope that "democracy will take deeper roots in Pakistan."
The Indian Prime Minister also reiterated his vision of peace and development in the entire neighborhood.
