French President François Hollande is in India on a three-day state visit. He was greeted warmly by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on his arrival. Now, anyone who has seen Modi greeting world leaders would immediately know that he holds nothing back when he welcomes dignitaries. His handshakes are firm, his embraces are warm, and he sometimes even holds hands when posing for the press.
These, for example.
Hollande too, sampled first hand, a famous Modi hug.
Twitter users, usually prompt at spotting material ripe for comedy, noticed an odd photo that they claimed resembled a now-famous pose from the Oscar-winning Hollywood film Titanic (1997).
