The highlight of the celebrations will be a show at India Gate titled 'Ek Nayi Subah' (A New Dawn) - from 5pm onwards.

A number of film stars, including Priyanka Chopra, Vidya Balan, Anupam Kher, Anil Kapoor, and Prasun Joshi, are expected to attend the event.

Meanwhile, putting all rumours to rest, Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan on 27 May clarified that he was not hosting the event at India Gate. "I am hosting a small segment of government's 'Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao' campaign. I am the UN ambassador for girl child education. I am not hosting the two years of Modi government event. In fact, Madhavan is hosting it," Bachchan said.

Earlier this week, the Congress questioned the Centre's decision to select the megastar to host the show, saying it might send wrong signals to the investigating agencies probing the Panama paper leaks.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and most of his ministerial colleagues are expected to attend the event. Besides this, the government has also launched a series of events to highlight its achievements.
