Prime Minister Narendra Modi and MF Husain—renowned Indian painter—have embraced popularity and controversies in their respective career paths. MF Husain passed away on June 9, 2011, but even now the mention of his name evokes two different emotions among the masses—some love his work but some oppose him "for being insensitive towards religious sentiments" of others. Apart from this unique relationship that they enjoy with the masses, Narendra Modi and MF Husain have one more thing in common—both were born on September 17.
