DELHI: Yuvraj Singh, the heartthrob cricketer, yesterday tweeted to PM Narendra Modi with a Velfie (Video Selfie) congratulating him on the completion of his successful first year as the Prime Minister of India.
He created a velfie using one of Modi's famous quotes from one of his recent speeches, where he talked about women empowerment.
The quote was, "Is taraf uss taraf ka mudda nahi hai, mudda hamari matao beheno ke samman ka hai, unko jeene ka ek adhikar dene ka hai."
The PM re-tweeted the post, and replied back saying:"Yuvi... you are equally talented off the field as you are on it. Thanks for the wishes. Hope you are doing well!"
Yuvi promptly thanked the PM saying: "Thank you sir it's an honour to receive your msg! Keep making India proud #MakeInIndia"
The cricketer posted this velfie (Video Selfie) on both his Instagram and Twitter accounts after which his fans appreciated his noble gesture and especially the unique way through which he sent out the message of women empowerment.
