Actor Aamir Khan on Thursday said that he won’t be attending the swearing-in ceremony of cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan in Pakistan, “Aamir said he had not received any invitation and won’t be going for the ceremony in Islamabad.”

Speaking to media, “Aamir Khan said he has a busy schedule and won’t be able to visit Pakistan for Imran Khan’s oath-taking event on August 11.

Though Aamir Khan has exempted himself from attending the event, Punjab cabinet minister and former cricketer Navjot Singh Sidhu on Wednesday accepted the invite of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) to attend Prime Minister-elect Imran Khan’s swearing-in ceremony on August 11.

Sidhu is the first among the notables who have confirmed his acceptance to the invite. He said, “It is a great honor for him and will show his attendance at the event”.

PTI leader Imran Khan is set to become Pakistan’s next prime minister after his party emerged as the strongest in the recently held elections in Pakistan.
