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."

Here's the post:

Famous television producer/director of Kaun Banega Crorepati, Siddhartha Basu shared the picture along with a caption that read, "These pics gone viral on the net. Cannot get the smile off my face, or the lump out of my throat."

Here's Siddhartha's post:

Boman Irani also shared the picture on his Instagram account, with a caption, "You’re only as happy as you choose to be’. A saying that holds true for one and all!! And I’m sure this selfie deserves more likes than most."

Here's Boman's post:

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 !!"

Here's Amitabh's post:

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:

Others on social media cannot stop reacting to the heart-breaking viral picture of the kids taking a selfie with a slipper.

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.
