'You're a cliche Modi, you're a cliche!': John Oliver has a laugh at the Indian PM on his show for quoting from Star Wars while standing next to Wolverine

"Narendra Modi, the Prime Minster of India, visited New York and did some classic New York things."

You can safely conclude that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to the Unites States of America will not be forgotten in a while. After a rousing speech at the United Nations General Assembly, Modi shared the stage with actor Hugh Jackman, of Wolverine fame, at the famous Central Park in New York.

After performances by various artistes like Beyonce Knowles, Modi was introduced to the crowd by actor Jackman as someone who started as a "tea salesman" and went on to become Chief Minister of Gujarat and then Prime Minister of India with a huge mandate.

At the end of his speech Modi told the wildly cheering crowd "May the force be with you", quoting from Star Wars, which instantly became a source of huge amusement for people both on and offline.

Modi's comment at the Global Citizen Festival in NY was the subject of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver who is hilarious usual.

Jokingly accusing Modi of doing all sorts of touristy things in NY, for example getting his caricature drawn on stage, Oliver tut-tutted "You're a cliché Modi, you're a cliché!"
