Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Australia visit was nothing short of a celebrity's red carpet moment, with all eyes and cameras on the Indian leader and his famous friendly rapport with Australian counterpart Tony Abbott.

In fact, Modi is said to have left behind the Internet's current sensation, Kim Kardashian, as his presence Down Under seem to have created more buzz in the Australian media.

Here are some interesting headlines about Modi's 'rockstar' tour as reported in the foreign media:

'India's rock star PM Narendra Modi to speak in front of 16,000 supporters in Sydney,' reported.

'Indian PM Rocks Arena,' The Sydney Morning Herald reported on its front page, following Modi's speech to the Indian diaspora at the Allphones Arena in Sydney.

'Modi Moves Like Jagger as India Diaspora Flocks to Sydney,' Bloomberg reported, in reference to the iconic Rolling Stones band that had performed at the iconic Allphone Arena last week.

'Narendra Modi express rolls into Sydney, bringing excited supporters,' The Guardian said, referring to the special train dubbed as the "Modi Express" that brought hundreds of Indian-Australians from Melbourne to Sydney.

Even the electronic media pursued Modi on his trip, and visuals of the Indian PM paying homage to the Australian war heroes were beamed live to the Australian television audience, IANS reported.

Even his historic address to the Australian Parliament on Tuesday was televised live by the state-owned Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) from Canberra.

Modi was in Australia between 14 and 18 November, and he visited the four cities of Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne.

Even at the star-studded G20 Summit that saw leaders such as Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin on one stage, it was Modi who was said to be the "most sought after" leader, with The Guardian even referring to him as "one of the most popular figures at this G20. A leader others want to see, and be seen with."

On the other hand, Kardashian has been trending on social media ever since she bared it all for a magazine cover. The reality star arrived in Melbourne on Monday to promote her new perfume Fleur Fatale.
