Putin could be heard saying that he is often "surprised" by PM Modi's tough stance over national security.
"To be honest, sometimes I am surprised by his tough stance on protecting the national interests of the Indian people," he said.
The 45-second clip has amassed thousands of views on X as users lauded Putin for his high praise of the prime minister while also sharing their surprise at the speech in Hindi.
Sharing his "observations from outside", the Russian president claimed he could not imagine the prime minister being "forced or intimidated" to make a decision.
"I cannot imagine that Modi can be intimidated, threatened, or forced to take any action or decision against the national interest of India and the Indian people. I know there is such pressure on them," he said.
Last month, during his address at the virtual G20 summit, Putin thanked India for its good work during its chairmanship of the G20 in New Delhi from September 9-10.
