As the Indian PM Narendra Modi attends the ‘Howdy Modi!’ event in the US, some Bollywood celebrities came out in the day to support the event and share how proud they feel on the country’s representation at such a large scale. 

One of the first appreciation came from actor Anupam Kher who wrote, “Houston mein Josh Kamaal ka hai!!! #HowdyModi Zindabad.” In a series of tweets, he wrote, “Everything about #HowdyModi was SPECTACULAR. Never have I seen such bonding between two countries. Reaction & cheering of the crowd of 50000 Indians in Houston was emotional & historical. And Hon. Prime Minister @narendramodi ji!! You are a real ROCKSTAR. Bravo. Jai Ho!”
