A picture of Aamir Khan praying has been widely shared online with a false claim. Those who shared the image claimed that the star was praying to God for help when his movie Laal Singh Chaddha broke.
We see this photo is almost 5 years old and has nothing to do with Laal Singh Chaddha.
As “Laal Singh Chaddha” continues to underperform in theaters – the film, at the time of this writing, only earns 56.70 Rs crore
The photo shows Khan performing “Aarti”. It was shared with captions like “Aamir Khan learned a lesson. In his movie ‘PK’ he said prayers and other rituals were a waste of money. But what happened? out now? He just grabbed a prayer right after his movie failed”. “
AFWA investigation revealed that this photo is almost 5 years old and has nothing to do with “Laal Singh Chaddha”.
A viral image reverse search brought us to a photo story published by Bollywood Hungama. Although the gallery did not reveal any details about when the pictures were taken, it said that the pictures were taken during Navratri celebrations in Vadodara, Gujarat.
Subsequent searches led us to an ANI video from September 25, 2017. There, Khan was seen touting Aarti at the Vadodara Navratri festival.
The video report mentions that Khan performed Aarti on the occasion of Durga Puja’s big holiday and that he also promoted his upcoming movie “Secret Superstar” during the event.
Then we found a Deccan Chronicles reports from September 25, 2017, say that Khan praised the atmosphere of the festival after participating in it. His movie “Secret Superstar” was released almost a month after his visit.
Thus, it is clear that the widely shared Aamir Khan photo has nothing to do with the box office failure of “Laal Singh Chaddha”.
