The 46-year-old Canadian Prime Minister replied in a tweet that his daughter "remembers it well".
This morning, when Justin Trudeau and his family finally met PM Modi for a ceremonial welcome at Rashtrapati Bhavan, there were namastes, handshakes and even bear hugs. There was no ear pulling but Ella-Grace Margaret greeted PM Modi with a hug.
Those who follow the PM's pictures - and even those who don't - are familiar with the ear-pulling.
In 2016, actor Akshay Kumar posted a photo of the Prime Minister pulling his son Aarav's ears. The actor was attending the International Fleet Review in Visakhapatnam with wife Twinkle Khanna and son. None of them seemed to mind the ear-pulling.
Proud moment in a father's life, when the Prime Minister pulls your son's ear in jest & calls him a good boy ;) pic.twitter.com/0NWRyDtWh6— Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) February 6, 2016
Eight-year-old bravery award recipient Ripa Das beamed with joy as she posed with the PM pulling her ears.
