As he stepped out of his vehicle, he was greeted by PM Modi with his signature hug. PM Modi shared warm moments with Mr Trudeau's family where he hugged his daughter Ella-Grace who has been nothing but a chic young girl on this trip, donning hats and flaunting dresses as well as Indian kurtis. Yesterday, PM Modi had posted on Twitter a picture taken during his visit to Canada in 2015, in which he is pulling the ears of Ella.
The row over Khalistan apart, the buzz over Mr Trudeau's week-long India visit has also been about his choice of traditional Indian clothes. Yesterday, Mr Trudeau, dressed in a black sherwani, made a grand entry at the Canada House dinner, and displayed his Bhangra moves to the beats of dhol. However, Mr Trudeau's wardrobe of traditional Indian clothing is being seen as dress-up.
I hope PM @JustinTrudeau and his family had a very enjoyable stay so far. I particularly look forward to meeting his children Xavier, Ella-Grace, and Hadrien. Here is a picture from my 2015 Canada visit, when I'd met PM Trudeau and Ella-Grace. pic.twitter.com/Ox0M8EL46xNarendra Modi (@narendramodi) February 22, 2018
Mr Trudeau, his wife Sophie Gregoire Trudeau and their children Xavier, Ella-Grace and Hadrien have also been wearing Indian clothing to special events and venues.
Is it just me or is this choreographed cuteness all just a bit much now? Also FYI we Indians don't dress like this every day sir, not even in Bollywood. pic.twitter.com/xqAqfPnRoZOmar Abdullah (@OmarAbdullah) February 21, 2018
