Amitabh Bachchan is known for having strong opinions, which he rarely keeps to himself. The senior Bachchan is pretty well known for expressing his unfiltered opinions on his social media handles.
Recently, a picture went viral which showed 5 kids attempting to click a selfie. The kids are seen clicking the picture with a slipper in hand, since they don’t have a phone.
The picture is really sweet, and instantly strikes a chord with you. Mostly because it reminds us of the simple pleasures of life.
However, Big B felt the need to criticize the photo and said that it looked photoshopped. He spoke of the angle of the photo and believed it was edited.
.. 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 !!

Amit ji 🙏🏽
Nice to hear from u
Checked wt 3 post prod experts independently
– Doo Creative, Hyd

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

Not photoshopped. One kid is wearing the other chappal.
And he is the only one who wears one. They show beautifully… happiness is not what you have, happiness is who you are ! pic.twitter.com/cDqN3Pe3Ye

Is that all you noticed? Did you notice the abject poverty? Did you notice the abysmally raw deal they have been given by your generation? Did you notice their need to be like children in other countries not ruled by your friends and cronies?

That is because that hand with the chappal is just close to the camera lense, so it naturally appear enlarged. I can vouch for this fact because I had a good number of such shots @megapixeleye

@ SrBachchan sir.. I think the slipper belongs to that another small boy.. See his one foot is on the ground with similar slipper and another one (since he has removed slipper) is hanging with the support.. I think this is genuine image with genuine innocence..
