Chartered accountants' body plays Darth Vader theme after Narendra Modi's GST address, Twitter goes crazy

It was supposed to be just another event for Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday. However, what happened next next set tongues wagging.

Just seconds after Modi completed his speech hard-selling GST to chartered accountants across India at the foundation day event of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India in New Delhi, the organisers played the Imperial March, the music associated with Star Wars' iconic villain Darth Vader. Perhaps, unaware of its significance in popular culture, the prime minister continued to wave blithely at his supporters.

Twitterati was, to say the least, amused: 



It wasn't Modi's first brush with Star Wars. During his 2014 visit to the United States, Modi, in the presence of X-Men star Hugh Jackman, blessed a gathering with a legendary dialogue from the franchise: May the force be with you.
