A heartening picture of a bunch of children posing for a selfie using a slipper instead of a camera has tugged on the heartstrings of many on Twitter. The photograph has been shared by many Bollywood celebs like Anupam Kher, Suniel Shetty and Atul Kasbekar and is widely going viral across the social media.
However, superstar Amitabh Bachchan holds a little different opinion. Big B has questioned whether the picture is real or has been edited.
With the view that the picture is morphed, Bachchan responded to the viral picture shared on twitter, saying, “with due respect and apology .. i feel this is photoshopped .. notice that the hand that holds the chappal is different than the rest of his body in size .. to his other hand by his side !!”

While some agreed with Bachchan’s observation, others disputed it.
Atul Kasbekar had also shared the same image and talked about how the kids moved him and made him smile. Earlier today, Kasbekar replied to the tweet with a possible explanation. He also mentioned that the image brings up questions and also said that he wanted to personally send these kids something!
Amit ji 🙏🏽

Checked wt 3 post prod experts independently

All of them said it’s NOT photoshopped
The hand wt the chappal looking enlarged is a matter of perspective distortion standard on smartphones

The photograph was initially tweeted by Anupam Kher and then went viral on social media once it was picked up by other celebrities. The veteran actor shared the picture with a heartwarming caption, “Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out” he tweeted with the picture.
