Actor Akshay Kumar has been in the headlines ever since the release of his movie Samrat Prithviraj. This time a picture of actor Manushi Chillar, Akshay Kumar and Union Home Minister Amit Shah standing in front of the movie poster is surfacing on the internet. Further, social media users are sharing the picture with the claim that Akshay is promoting his movie right from the BJP’s office.
Meanwhile, a social media user Sanjay Singh Parihar shared a picture on his Facebook handle. On the image, it was written that.” Akshay Ji ask for Indian citizenship also.” Further, the caption also claims that instead of the Kapil Sharma show, promotion of the movie is going on BJP’s office.”
Similarly, many social media users have shared this picture on their user handles.
On reverse image search of the viral picture, we got an Instagram post on the verified account of Miss World 2017 Manushi Chillar. The caption of the post is, “Honoured and humbled to meet the Honourable Home Minister of India Shri Amit Shah Ji. And all the other esteemed guests today at the special screening of #SamratPrithviraj in New Delhi. 2 days to go for the release!”
Furthermore, we also found the same picture in an article in the Times of India. It is mention in the article that the picture is of the time of the screening of the movie in New Delhi.
Therefore, this picture is getting viral with the misleading claim. The viral picture is of the special screening of the movie at the Chanakyapuri PVR, New Delhi.
