Hours before landing in India for his two-day India visit on Monday, US President Donald Trump shared an edited video from the movie "Baahubali 2: The Conclusion" which shows his own face superimposed on the hit movie-character Bahubali, showing the president as a great saviour bringing peace to his kingdom. The mashup video also features Ivanka Trump, Donald Trump Jr and PM Modi's face is also morphed into the clip for a few seconds.
Re-tweeting the video, US President Donald Trump wrote: "Look so forward to being with my great friends in INDIA!"
"To celebrate Trump's visit to India I wanted to make a video to show how in my warped mind it will go... USA and India united!" the handle Solmemes1 tweeted in the original post with the video.
Back on Twitter, Trump lauded the Bollywood gay rom-com "Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan" on Friday.
"A new #Bollywood rom-com featuring a gay romance is hoping to win over older people, following the decriminalisation of homosexuality. Hurrah!" tweeted @PeterTatchell.
To this, @realDonaldTrump tweeted: "Great!"
President Trump will pay a state visit to India on February 24 and 25 at the invitation of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Trump will be accompanied by a high-level delegation including First Lady Melania Trump, the President's daughter Ivanka Trump, son-in-law Jared Kushner and a galaxy of top American officials.
Setting the tone of his visit earlier this week, Trump had said that although India doesn't give the US a fair deal, he is coming because he likes Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
"I congratulated Prime Minister Modi. I said, 'But, you know, you have 1.5 billion people. I have 350 million. You have an advantage'," Trump had said in Las Vegas.
"We're going to India, and we may make a tremendous deal there, or maybe we'll slow it down. We'll do it after the election. I think that could happen too. So we'll see what happens.
"But we're only making deals if they're good deals, because we're putting America first. Whether people like it or not, we're putting America first," the US President had said. _Agencies
