A recent photo of Prime Minister Narendra Modi pulling Akshay Kumar's son Aarav Bhatia's ear has gone viral. Modi met Aarav at the International Fleet Review 2016 (IFR 2016) at Visakhapatnam coast on Saturday, 6 February.

The second edition of the International Fleet Review started on Thursday last week. The five-day event has brought together 50 countries, 99 ships, 24 foreign warships, and 4,000 sailors.

Apart from the Prime Minister and President Pranab Mukherjee, Bollywood actor Akshay, along with his wife Twinkle Khanna and son Aarav, was also present at the review.

Akshay, who is the brand ambassador of the International Fleet Review, shared a picture of PM Modi and Aarav on social media. In the photo, Modi is pulling Aarav's ear and the boy is posing with a smile.

"Proud moment in a father's life, when the Prime Minister pulls your son's ear in jest & calls him a good boy ;)" Akshay tweeted.

Also, mother Twinkle shared the picture on Twitter with a caption, which read: "When a picture is truly worth a thousand words.. #BigMoment."

Last month, Akshay won hearts with his power-packed performance in film "Airlift." The film, directed by Raja Krishna Menon, featured a fresh pairing of Akshay and Nimrat Kaur.

"Airlift" revolved around the arduous task of evacuating 1.7 lakh Indians in Kuwait in 488 flights over a span of 59 days by one man.The evacuation process, which was carried out during the Iraq-Kuwait Gulf War of 1990, was so large and precise that it created a Guinness World Record for India.
