Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi made many burst into laughter at the big White House state dinner held in his honour on Thursday. He made jokes about his poor singing abilities, the time President Joe Biden asked him to eat despite his fast, and how wonderful relations between Indians and Americans have been.

The Prime Minister, who is known for his sense of humour, had the almost 400 guests laugh as he toasted Biden and first lady Jill Biden before dinner was served. “I know your hospitality has moved your guests to sing. I wish, I too, had the singing talent. I could have also sang before you all,” he joked.

He was referring to South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol, who stunned guests in April at a state banquet held at the White House in his honour by getting up on stage and belting out one of his favourite songs, “American Pie,” to loud acclaim.
