In the phone-conversation, which was recorded before the Prime Minister left the country on a week-long trip to the US, Modi wished the singer for her birthday. "Pranaam, I called because I will be travelling on your birthday. I thought before leaving I should wish you and congratulate you. I wish you good health and may your blessings be on us. I pray," he said.

The nonagenarian asked Modi to bless her, but he said the singer was elder to him in age and work and she should bless him instead.

"Your arrival has changed India's image and it makes me very happy," she added.
