Discrepancies in the viral image: The image had several glaring discrepancies, such as the hand of Ambani looked blurred and misshapen.

  • Merchant's hand clutching the purse also appeared to be blurred and the latter looked incomplete.

  • Moreover, the difference in lighting on Merchant and Ambani's face was another error that we spotted.

  • These errors are usually seen in AI-generated images, which indicated that the visual was not real.
