Ahead of his visit, PM Modi, in a tweet this morning, said,
Leaving for UK. I am hopeful this visit will strengthen economic ties between India and UK & bring more investment to India. #makeinindia- Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) November 12, 2015
The visit comes after the Prime Minister's big push for reforms that took off some of the gloom following his party's resounding defeat in the Bihar assembly elections. It also follows an internal upheaval in the party as a group of veteran leaders, including LK Advani, issued a strong criticism of the party leadership.
But in London, many non-resident Indians and businessmen who have huge investments in India, say their wishlist is going up by the day, despite the Bihar outcome.
"I understand that he has been in office for only 17 months. But I do hope and believe the system will change for the better," said businessman Mahendra Singh Jadeja.
The testimony of the Prime Minister's popularity is expected at Wembley, which will be decked up with life-size cutouts, the largest plasma screens the stadium has seen and unique lighting on the stadium's grass pitch that will create an illusion of closeness to the stage.
More than 600 artists are performing in what is expected to be an Olympic-style ceremony attended by over an audience of over 60,000. The welcome speech will be delivered by UK Prime Minister David Cameron.
"Wembley has not done a show of this magnitude for any elected politician and when we told them what we wanted they said it would take 18 months. But we did it in four," said Mayuri Parmar, spokesperson of the UKwelcomesModi committee.
"I sometimes wonder why I don't have the magical ability to bring 60,000 people of my city together at one place," Mr Cameron has joked.
