He wrote: "Anil Kapoor and I took an oath long time back to be friends forever. Today we have come to Delhi for another oath ceremony. Jai Ho."

On the other hand, Anil Kapoor, too, took to social media and expressed his happiness to mark his attendance. For the ceremony, Anil opted for a formal black suit. The Mr India actor wrote, "Honoured to be attending one of the most important ceremonies of the year. Thank you Hon. President @ram_nath_kovind for the invitation".

Ace director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra made his presence felt too. Before attending the ceremony, he told IANS, "Today, the honourable Prime Minister and his cabinet will take an oath to serve our country. I am humbled to be a part of this historic moment. The question is not what we expect from them. The question is what each Indian will do for their Motherland."

Anil's elder brother, producer Boney Kapoor, also told IANS he would be a part of the ceremony.

Other prominent faces to grace Modi's swearing-in ceremony were Karan Johar, Shahid Kapoor, Kartik Aaryan, Rajkumar Hirani, Aanand L. Rai, Mangesh Hadawale and Mahaveer Jain.
