Although we have so many social media platforms such as Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram, etc. filled with perfect pictures that can make you envious, some pictures really touch hearts. We have seen the handsome chaiwala from Pakistan become famous via social media and so many other people as well, but the people that are going viral recently are actually breaking hearts across the internet. A picture of about five little kids posing to click a selfie with a slipper is going viral on the internet. With broad smiles, the children can be seen posing for a group selfie like they must have seen others do. The picture was also noticed by celebrities who shared their reaction on it.
The picture was originally shared by popular Indian fashion photographer and Bollywood Film Producer, Atul Kasbekar with a caption, "I'm sharing this image that came in on text caused unbridled innocence n joy of these lovely kids moved men made me smile in equal measure. Super image that asks questions. If anyone can reliably locate these munchkins and photog I'd love to personally send them something each."

Amitabh Bachchan also reacted to the picture wondering if it was Photoshopped, he said, ".. 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 !!"

However, Atul Kasbekar who's tweet Amitabh Bachchan had reacted on, tried to clear the confusion by talking to not one, but three post-production experts and all of them said that it was not photoshopped. Take a look at the tweet.
Atul's reply to Amitabh:
Amit ji 🙏🏽
Nice to hear from u
Checked wt 3 post prod experts independently
- Doo Creative, Hyd
- Khurshed Poonawala
All of them said it’s NOT photoshopped
The hand wt the chappal looking enlarged is a matter of perspective distortion standard on smartphones

Actually ..to me this picture speaks a lot. I feel it's the good example for impression of activities of today's youths and adults on the children's of our nation.....

Guess they are a lot happier in the absence of the actual gadget.

We wish, we soon find out whoever clicked the picture. Also, the smile on the kids' faces never fade away and that they realise that their true innocence and self-satisfaction is worth a million dollar.
