Narendra Modi took oath as the 15th Prime Minister of India on May 26 in a star-studded ceremony. Apart from international dignitaries like Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Afghan President Hamid Karzai, and Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa, several Bollywood actors were also present at the function.

While Hema Malini, Shatrughan Sinha and Vinod Khanna contested the recently concluded Lok Sabha elections on a BJP ticket, other celebrities like Salman Khan, his father Salim Khan, Anupam Kher and Madhur Bhandarkar also attended the ceremony.

However, it was actor Vivek Oberoi who became the buzz on social media. 

Oberoi, who had previously campaigned for Modi, was among the Bollywood celebrities who were invited for the ceremony. Oberoi has been seen active on Twitter regarding his political views.

The actor expressed his excitement on Twitter, about being a guest at the ceremony.


At the inauguration, Oberoi was spotted in an eye-catching pink jacket with the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP's)​ lotus symbol stitched on. This rather unconventional fashion sense got him on the list of the most trending on Twitter. Several Twitter users mocked his style and presence at the ceremony:









Cricket icons Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Sachin Tendulkar also made it to Delhi for Modi's inauguration ceremony.
