American journalist Megyn Kelly is being criticised on social media platforms for not doing her homework properly before meeting Russian President Vladmir Putin and Prime Minister Narendra Modi in St Petersburg.
Megyn Kelly, who launched her new show on NBC News, asked Mr. Modi, who is one of the world's most followed politicians, "Are you on Twitter?"
While she was greeting the two leaders, PM Modi said he had seen a post by the journalist with an umbrella.
Ms Kelly responded, "Oh really, did you? Are you on Twitter?" PM Modi appeared to smile and nod.
