NEW DELHI: Arvind Kejriwal's swearing-in ceremony today had some unusual supporters as well, including a mythical 'PK', bringing in a dash of humour to the day.

Amid the sea of trademark AAP white caps, a man wearing a yellow motorcycle helmet, with "5 saal Kejriwal" painted in red over it, was seen moving around in the crowd.

The man, who had come dressed up as the famous eponymous character portrayed by Aamir Khan in the film "PK" was an instant hit among the crowd as well as the lensmen.

The man also carried a placard in praise of Kejriwal, using the language and references used in the movie.

"'E gola ke un sabhi logan ka dhanyawad. Jon Kejriwal bhai ko vote diye. Ab AK bhai desh ke lul system ko sudharenge (Thanks to all the people of this planet who voted for Kejriwal. Now, AK will reform the spoilt system')," the message read.

The back side of his helmet had "AK" emblazoned in red. People were seen taking selfies with this "unusual visitor", who many, in lighter vein said, "had come from another gola (planet) to support Kejriwal".

In the movie, the 'PK' character says that he wears yellow-coloured helmet so that god can see him clearly.

"This man wearing the same coloured helmet can easily be spotted amid the sea of white caps. And, look he even does that eye-popping thing like Aamir Khan too," said Asmat Ali, who was one among those who attended the function.

Among other unusual supporters included a man from Bihar who was dressed up in AAP caps from top to toe, and wielded a broom in his hand.

The man who identified himself as Mohammed from Araria district, had pinned up the trademark caps over his clothes, and chanted praises for Kejriwal.

"I only have faith in Arvind Kejriwal and if his party decides to enter politics in Bihar, I will go there and sing praises for him there as well. I am sick of corruption in our society," he said.

Adding to the list of "weird characters" was another man, who came to the venue, wearing a long red vest over a red knicker with red leggings beneath it. He wore a white leather belt on his waist and had thrown a multi-coloured 'duppata' over his shoulders.

Sporting a pair of shades he had a bling-bearing caps over his head and wore blue-and-white long arm bands, while a couple of beaded chains with a big pendant dangled from his neck.

Among other peculiar way of showing love for the AAP leader, a placard was seen in the crowd, which had "Janta ka CM" written with broom signs on it.
