As Narendra Modi is all set to be sworn in as the Prime Minister for the second time in a row, various B-Town celebrities are flying in to attend the event, including Anupam Kher.

Expressing his gratitude over being invited to the "historical event," Anupam said, "The country has chosen this government with a mandate. Kiran is a Member of Parliament of this government and Modi is taking the country forward. I am lucky that I am getting to witness and be a part of this historical moment."

Anupam's wife Kirron Kher won from Chandigarh with a margin of 46,970 votes.

Apart from the 'The Accidental Prime Minister' actor, the ceremony will also be attended by Vivek Oberoi, Boman Irani, BJP MP Hema Malini, Kangana Ranaut and filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra.

Modi's swearing-in ceremony is scheduled to be held at 7 pm in the forecourt of the Rashtrapati Bhavan. President Ram Nath Kovind will administer the oath of office and secrecy at the function.
