In one of the biggest events celebrating the bilateral relationship between India and USA, Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi was greeted enthusiastically by United States of America at the ‘Howdy, Modi’ event on Sunday. While the build-up to the event in itself was massive, the gathering lived up to the hype with some mesmerising performances that were on display at the NRG Stadium in Houston. Even Rishi Kapoor expressed his pride about his being and the Indian community, with an Indian Prime Minister being welcomed on such a massive scale. The veteran actor also conveyed his best wishes to PM Modi and USA President Donald Trump for a constructive meeting.
As varied kinds of performances brought 50,000 people on their feet at the NSG Stadium, Rishi Kapoor exulted,“#howdymodi “Go Modi” - “Go Trump” - Houston, US. Proud of our being. Proud of the community. Proud of India.”

Rishi Kapoor is someone who could understand the atmosphere because he recently returned from the USA after spending close to a year there. The ‘Agneepath’ star got treated for cancer in New York and it was only a few days back that he returned after a successful treatment.
PM Modi and USA President Donald Trump also bonded on Twitter as the event was set to kick off. Trump welcomed his ‘friend’ PM Modi, “Will be in Houston to be with my friend. Will be a great day in Texas!”
PM Modi responded, “It surely will be a great day! Looking forward to meeting you very soon @realDonaldTrump.”
A 90-minute cultural performance involving dance, music and multimedia by ‘Woven’ was one of the highlights of the ‘Howdy, Modi’ event. A rendition of ‘Ekla Chalo’ by the troupe consisting of over 400 artists was awe-inspiring. PM Modi is expected to address the 50,000 spectators at the event.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi held constructive discussions with Kashmiri Pandits, Dawoodi Bohra and Sikh delegations after landing in Houston earlier in the day. PM Modi got praised for his government's initiatives like the Kartarpur Corridor initiative and the abrogation of the Article 370.
