The Trudeaus landed in India last week and have so far visited the Taj Mahal, Ahmedabad, Mumbai and Amritsar. Canada's First Family's fashion choices have been panned by many as too... umm Bollywood. Justin Trudeau and his family have sported groom-like shervanis and heavily embroidered kurtas and sarees.
