He also urged actors Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan, and filmmaker Karan Johar to "creatively ensure high voter awareness and participation in the coming elections".

In 29 rapid-fire tweets, Modi tagged cricketers Virat Kohli, Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Bollywood actors Ranveer Singh and Vicky Kaushal, asking them to inspire others to exercise their franchise in the world's largest democracy.

Calling "Gully Boy" stars Ranveer Singh, Varun Dhawan and Vicky Kaushal his friends, Modi said "many youngsters admire you" and "It is time to tell them: Apna Time Aa Gaya Hai and that it is time to turn up with high Josh to a voting centre near you". The prime minister, who will seek his second mandate this time, said if this year's election could set a new record of turnout, then the real victor will be democracy itself. When this happens, democracy will be the victor!

Besides them, he also appealed to RSS, NCC, NSS and Nehru Yuva Kendra to "help increase voter awareness and tap the power of society for democracy".

In a series of tweets, Narendra Modi reached out to rivals from opposition parties across the country asking them to come together for the Indian democracy.

The Blue Devils will play either No. 6 seed Syracuse (19-12), No 11 seed Boston College (14-16) or No 14 seed Pittsburgh (13-18). He hasn't been in uniform for Duke's final five regular season games after suffering a sprained right knee.

"Spare yourself from that regret and go vote", advises the prime minister, who also said that by voting, people connect themselves with the country's dreams and aspirations.

"Dear @srikidambi, @Pvsindhu1 & @NSaina, The core of badminton is the court and the core of democracy is the vote".

He also sought participation of spiritual gurus Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and Sadhguru for "greater voter awareness".

In his next tweet, he tagged Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao, Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik, Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy and YSR Congress leader Jagan Mohan Reddy, urging them to "work towards bringing maximum Indians to the polling booths in the upcoming elections". Ensuring maximum participation in voting is the flawless way to strengthen democracy. "Let us strive to create an atmosphere where maximum voting can take place", he tweeted.

But despite remaining popular, he faces a challenge to repeat the feat when India's 900 million voters cast ballots between April 11 and May 19.
