Former cricketers Brett Lee and Adam Gilchrist on Friday exchanged pleasantries with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi during a dinner banquet hosted for Australian PM Tony Abbott. The former cricketers were included in the Australian delegation as part of Abbott's official tour of India.

Lee's love for India is well known and the former Australian speed ace enjoys a huge fan base in the country. He will also soon star in an Indo-Australian movie project titled 'UnIndian', a romantic comedy. In the film, Lee will be seen romancing actress Tannishtha Chatterjee. The sportsman says he is comfortable doing a romantic film as it suits his real life personality.

At the dinner banquet with Modi, Lee looked extremely happy and later shared a picture on social networking site Twitter where the two were seen shaking hands while posing for the camera.
