Hours ahead of their meeting tomorrow, PM Modi acknowledged Mr Trudeau's presence with a tweet - and a photo of an earlier visit that includes Mr Trudeau's nine-year-old daughter, Ella-Grace Margaret.
I look forward to meeting PM @JustinTrudeau tomorrow and holding talks on further strengthening India-Canada relations in all spheres. I appreciate his deep commitment to ties between our two countries.— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) February 22, 2018
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/Ox0M8EL46x— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) February 22, 2018
The Trudeaus' group photos at the Taj Mahal, Golden Temple and other monuments have been taken down for the too-high Bollywood Quotient - they have appeared in carefully choreographed namastes and a variety of shiny and bright Indian outfits.
Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah posted multiple images of Canada's First Family and panned their fashion diplomacy.
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/xqAqfPnRoZ— Omar Abdullah (@OmarAbdullah) February 21, 2018
And he wasn't the only one to do so.
Incredible India tourism campaign should hire them https://t.co/mJjhXTKah9— Shivam Vij (@DilliDurAst) February 21, 2018

Bro Golden Temple is not at the airport, have some chill... https://t.co/UIK7hohjJN— Kabir Taneja (@KabirTaneja) February 21, 2018
Why couldn't @JustinTrudeau just use Photoshop? That way he could have had photos of all the INDIAN outfits and temples and ashrams and monuments and Bollywood without having to travel so many thousands of miles? It's the costliest election photo-shoot.— SUHEL SETH (@suhelseth) February 21, 2018
But there have also been some voicing their appreciation and support for the Trudeaus' sartorial choices.
Sir if they want to pay respects to the culture of our country why should one be disturbed. It's a moment they want to enjoy with India and that's it. https://t.co/BJDeZQAfFm— Ashoke Pandit (@ashokepandit) February 21, 2018
All those criticising @JustinTrudeau 4 making that extra effort 2 adopt Indian ways n clothes should really be ashamed of themselves. Here's a family who is making an effort 2 adopt a country they r visiting. How many of us do that? Well done Mr Trudeau n family. You r fabulous! https://t.co/oowJ3fEqXp— Prarthna Gahilote (@prattyg) February 22, 2018
Absolutely love it. Shows the respect they have for the country they are visiting. We may not dress like this everyday but no harm in them doing this for a few days :)— Reena (@RinksB) February 21, 2018
I'm not sure what's all the fuss about. Obviously, someone else has created their wardrobe. They have trusted that advice and despite some of it being over the top, I think it's nice of them to wear it. In any case, I think they're all looking really good. Get over it.— Sarika (@idayre) February 21, 2018
Previously, Mr Trudeau has been photographed wearing colourful kurtas, shiny sherwanisand even veshtiswhile celebrating Indian festivals in Canada.
