St. Petersburg: Now this may come as a shock for not only Indians but people across the globe. An American journalist Megyn Kelly has asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi, if he was on the micro-blogging site.

The journo has come under widespread online criticism for asking the Indian Prime Minister as he is the second-most followed politician on Twitter with over 30 million followers.

Kelly, 46, met Modi when she had to interview Russian President Vladimir Putin in this Russian city for her new NBC show.

The channel aired a teaser video on Friday morning of the show where Kelly greets Putin and Modi at state party dinner at the Konstantin Palace in St. Petersburg.

Modi tells the American journalist that he had seen a picture of her with an umbrella in St. Petersburg she had posted on Twitter.

The picture Modi referred to had a caption: "Things are looking up in St. Petersburg - the rain stopped...& I will interview President Putin on Friday".

"Ohh really! Did you? Are you on Twitter?" Kelly replied with a broad smile. Apparently taken aback, Modi nodded saying 'yes'.

Her poser invited an online backlash. The journalist was accused of not doing her homework.

It is worth mentioning that American singer and songwriter Katy Perry is the only one ahead of PM Modi as she holds the No.1 spot with over 99 million followers.
