Islamabad: Pakistan’s Prime Minister-in-waiting Imran Khan has invited Bollywood star Aamir Khan and former cricket heroes Kapil Dev and Sunil Gavaskar to his oath-taking ceremony on Aug.11, the Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) announced on Wednesday.

The development came after PTI leaders met Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua to discuss which foreign dignitaries could be invited to the PTI chief’s ceremony, leading daily Dawn reported.

Earlier reports said the PTI wished to invite the heads of South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (Saarc) member states including Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi as well as China and Turkey.

Meanwhile, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan congratulated Imran on winning the just-concluded general elections over the phone.

Imran thanked Erdogan, calling his leadership “an example for the Islamic world,” the Anadolu Agency quoted Turkish presidential sources as saying, Xinhua reported.
