While all eyes were on Uddhav Thackeray, the appearance of these guests on the Shivaji Park podium took everyone by surprise.
First was estranged cousin Raj Thackeray. Raj Thackeray had broken away from the family when Uddhav, instead of him, was elevated to the post of Shiv Sena chief by patriarch Bal Thackeray. He went on to form the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena.
Then it was the appearance of Devendra Fadnavis. The BJP leader had been at loggerheads with the Uddhav Thackery-led government till a few days ago and finally had to step down as CM to make way for the new government.
And at last, it was the richest Indian man and Reliance Industries chairman- Mukesh Ambani and his wife Nita.
