Prime Minister Narendra Modi whose Italy visit to attend the G7 Summit is now not only about intense discussions on global issues. Seems like his time there also has some parts to play for his interactions with state leaders and a memorable selfie video with Italian PM Giorgia Meloni. PM Modi is attending the summit as part of an outreach session and engaged in bilateral discussions with several world leaders before departing for India early Saturday.

Soon after, the hashtag #Melodi started trending on Saturday after Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni shared a lighthearted moment with PM Modi on social media. The viral video shows Meloni cheerfully saying, “Hello from the Melodi team,” a playful fusion of their names.

This moment, intended to be affectionate, has sparked a wave of memes and reactions on social media.
