In a recent interview with the press, Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut - who has often been coined "anti-Pakistan" - surprised the media when she softened the stance on Pakistan and commented that she was full of hope because of Imran Khan. "I really hope and appeal that we have a really attractive relationship henceforth". I recently congratulated Imran Khan on his victory in the elections.

She recalled, "I predicted when former prime minister Nawaz Sharif took oath back in 2013 that it would be back-breaking for him and the prediction tuned out to be true". The ties between the two countries had strained after the terror attacks by Pakistan-based groups in 2016 and India's surgical strikes inside Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.

Cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu will attend the swearing-in ceremony of Pakistan Prime Minister-designate Imran Khan on August 18.
