Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Donald Trump on Sunday addressed a mega event of Indian-Americans at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas. The event - Howdy, Modi: Shared Dreams, Bright Future - was attended by over 50,000-strong crowd, making it a largest ever event addressed by a foriegn leader on the American soil. 

After the event, Modi and Trump interacted with kids who performed at the event and a "lucky boy" got the chance to take a selfie with two of the world's tallest leaders. A video shared by the prime minister's office shows the two leaders stopping by for a brief interaction with kids. During the interaction, it appeared that Trump noticed a mobile in the boy's hand and apparently asked whether he wants to click a selfie.
