After the mega 'Howdy, Modi!' event concluded in Houston, Prime Minister Narendra Modi apologised to Senator John Cornyn's wife as on her birthday the US lawmaker was attending the Indian leader's mega diaspora.

In a video tweet posted by the Prime Minister's office, Modi is heard addressing to Cornyn's wife Sandy, who is in her late 60s, while apologising and wishing her on her birthday.

 The 67-year-old Senator is seen standing next to Modi smiling.

"I would like to say sorry because today is your birthday and your great life partner is with me so naturally, you must be jealous today," Prime Minister Modi said.

"Wish you all the best, wish you a happy life and very prosperous peaceful future for you. All the best," he said.

The couple have been married for 40 years and have two daughters.

Cornyn, who is a senator from Texas, was among a number of prominent Republican and Democratic lawmakers who attended the mega "Howdy Modi!" event in Houston on Sunday where Modi shared the stage with President Donald Trump and addressed a record crowd of 50,000 Indian-Americans.
