Kher described Modi's oath taking day as historic and full of hope while hailing his election as the prime minister as a victory for India and not just the Bharatiya Janta Party ( BJP). He also praised the invitation extended to all South Asian Association Regional Cooperation (SAARC) nations' leaders to the oath taking ceremony, calling it a farsighted move.
On my way to Delhi. Looking forward to the beginning of a new era. Jai Ho.:) #SwearingInceremony

Meanwhile, another veteran Bollywood personality, Javed Akhtar, said that the whole nation is awaiting the announcement of Modi's cabinet. He also said that while it was a graceful move, there wasn't any need to look for a deeper meaning in Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's visit to India for Modi's anointment as the Prime Minister.
Earlier there were reports that a few of his star-supporters from the film industry were invited to his swearing-in ceremony.
Since Narendra Modi led the BJP to victory, several Bollywood bigwigs including Kher had fallen over each other to send him congratulatory messages.
