    New Delhi (Sputnik): Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi was amused after Indian actress Gul Panag shared a video of her toddler son recognising India’s leading man on a magazine cover.

    Bollywood actress Gul Panag recently tweeted a 10-second video of herself pointing at Prime Minister Modi’s photographs in magazines and asking her toddler to identify who was in the picture.

    In the video, the small child promptly recognises the Indian Prime Minister and says it’s “Modi” to which Gul corrects him, saying, “Modi Ji”; the little kid follows mom's lead. The suffix 'Ji' is used in Hindi to indicate respect.

    ​The video, which has already amassed nearly 326,000 views on Gul’s Twitter handle within 12 hours of being posted, also drew Prime Minister Modi’s attention.

    Sending his blessings to Nihal and calling the kid “extremely adorable”, Prime Minister Modi re-tweeted the video on his official Twitter handle; he has 50.8 million followers.

    ​Twitterati were quick to appreciate the 40-year old actress for correcting the way her son addressed the prime minister.

    ​Some netizens also admired the fact that the prime minister not just liked but re-tweeted the video while showering his blessings as well.
