Justin Trudeau is in India on a week long visit with his family and it seems that amidst all his political and business commitments, managed to take time out to have a great time — be it reliving his childhood memories while visiting the Taj Mahal or making rotis at the Golden Temple in Amritsar. And on Thursday (February 22), the Canadian PM was seen doing the traditional folk dance of Bhangra in New Delhi. Making a grand entrance during an event at Canada House in the Capital, Trudeau was seen flaunting his Bhangra skills as he took the stage. Wearing a black sherwani he was seen making classic Bhangra move in the beats of dhol.

We know about his love for Bhangra and even this time it wowed many on social media.
It’s official, I think we should keep him. You can take ours https://t.co/sGs5kUyoRN

However, not everyone was thrilled about his dancing. Many Tweeple were unhappy and said, “Indians don’t live like they are in a Bollywood set 24×7.” It seems like his over-Indianised clothes, his dancing too irked some.

No Trudeau, you have got it all wrong.
We Indians don’t dress like we are going to a wedding all the time or say Namastey to everyone we meet on the road. Neither do we enter a get together doing Bhangra. Most of all, we don’t carry terrorists in our planes to the host country.

Enough is enough Mr @JustinTrudeau , we Indians don’t always dress up in Salwar Kameez or dance to the tune of Bhangra.Please address your vote bank concerns in Canada rather than in India.Much Thanx,Happy Holidays !! #JustinTrudeau #Trudeau #TrudeauInIndia https://t.co/HUIVm2bsjj

Follow Canadian PM Justin Trudeau India visit and you will realise that it is an overstretched hindi daily soap with all glamour and blingy stuff with songs and dances but no story as such. 😌😁

On any other occasion, this narcissistic peacocking would simply be eye rolling. But after his disastrous week it’s just pitiful. Will no one around him stop him? pic.twitter.com/Uo3jnnE5Nw #TrudeauInIndia
