A video showing Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi pulling Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who was blocking the camera filming him before the start of the Townhall event, has gone viral on Facebook.
The 15-second video clip is believed to have been taken at the Facebook headquarters in Menlo Park at Silicon Valley before the start of the Townhall Q&A on 27 September. The clip shows Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and COO Sheryl Sandberg at the stage discussing something.
Zuckerberg, who seems to be blocking the view of the camera, suddenly gets pulled by Modi towards the right. Modi then quickly indicates that he (Zuckerberg) is blocking the camera.
The camera does not clearly show Zuckerberg's reaction, but he is seen straightening up his jacket before continuing with the conversation with Modi.
A social media-user posted the clip on Facebook with a caption - "No one should come in between Modi and camera, not even Mark Zuckerberg," since then it has gone viral.
The clip also has been shared by hundreds of users on Facebook and is now available on YouTube and Twitter.
The incident saw several funny reactions on Twitter, where some noted that Modi has "scanners" that can sense camera presence.
