Indian actor turned politician Sunny Doel announced on Friday that he will be part of the inaugural ceremony of the Kartarpur Corridor which will be held on November 9.

Doel is not the only notable Indian who will be in attendance for the ceremony. Former prime minister Manmohan Singh, Punjab chief minister Amarinder Singh and ministers Hardeep Puri and Harsimrat Kaur Badal will also be in attendance.

Congress lawmaker Navjot Singh Sidhu was also given political clearance to visit the Gurdwara Darbar Sahib by the foreign ministry on Thursday.

Inaugural ceremony for the Kartarpur Corridor will be held on both sides of the border on Saturday.

The corridor will be inaugurated by Prime Minister Imran Khan on the Pakistani side, while Prime Minister Narendra Modi will declare it open at the other end.
