Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is currently in India and is accompanied by his wife Sophie and children  Xavier and Ella Trudeau. Superstar Shah Rukh Khan, and other B-town celebs on Tuesday met Canadian PM Trudeau and his family. Trudeau, who was glad to meet the Baadshah of Bollywood, took to his micro-blogging site to share a candid picture with the King of Bollywood.

And who better to help than @iamsrk himself… Great to meet you!.” Apart from SRK, Aamir Khan, Farhan Akhtar, Anupam Khan and others also greeted Trudeau and his family at the event.

Trudeau, who is very fond of the Indian culture and their dressing sense, was seen sporting a golden sherwani. Yesterday, the Prime Minister said in a statement, “One of the things that I really wanted to show to my kids is the extraordinary diversity of India, being able to go to a mandir, to Golden Temple, to a mosque and then to other places, this highlights the diversity and pluralism of India which isn’t without its challenges.” ALSO READ: Deepika Padukone Shares A Poem She Penned In 7th Grade And Fans Can’t Stop Gushing – View Pic

Even Farhan Akhtar took to social media to write, “Was an honour & a pleasure to meet the Hon. Prime Minister of Canada, @JustinTrudeau & his lovely wife, Sophie. Sir, your leadership in the discourse for ending gender discrimination serves as constant inspiration to us all.”

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Tuesday said that a people-to-people connection was important for the Indo-Canadian relations.

“(Chanda Kochar) think business to business or government to government, but I think people to people as several people come to Canada from India, students, and entrepreneurs. So, Indo-Canada for me is important for me in terms of people to people connect,” Trudeau said in a conversation with Managing Director (MD) and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) ICICI Bank Chanda Kochhar here.

While sharing the experience about his Taj Mahal visit, Trudeau said, “I was fortunate enough to visit India as a child with my father in my childhood with bodyguards but this time I came with my kids and I tried to make them understand the kind of transformation has taken place here.”

The Canadian President amazed by the Indian diversity said this would let his children understand that diversity was not only in Canada but also in various other parts of the world. Applauding India for trade potential, Trudeau said that there was an anxiety in the western world about the success of trade here. “Canada is doing several trade pacts with various deals with other countries. Benefits of the trade should be shared with citizens and marginalised communities,” he said.

He further added, “While the world is closing in for immigration, Canada is opening up and Canada has created success and will continue to do so. Canada can bring top talents from the world. Understanding the benefits of immigration will benefit.”

Yesterday, speaking with the students at IIM Ahmadabad, the Canadian Prime Minister, who is on a week-long visit to India, said that women were facing discrimination, sexism, and judgment every day in their lives. The visit is an opportunity for Trudeau to connect with the Indian leaders in the government and business, promote empowerment of women and girls, and strengthen Canada and India’s close economic ties.
