The image had garnered over 2 lakh views on the platform, when this report was being written. (More archives of similar claims can be found here and here.)

Are these claims true?: No, the image has been generated using the help of Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools.

  • We did not find any news reports or information to support that Musk did attend the pre-wedding celebration hosted by the Ambani family.


Discrepancies in the viral image: A closer at Musk's hands revealed that his thumbs appear to be blurred and merging, which is a common error spotted in AI-generated images.

  • His face had a smoothened-out texture, a common feature of images generated using AI.

No news reports available: Team WebQoof performed a keyword search on Google, but did not come across any news reports or information to support the claim that Musk had attended the pre-wedding celebrations.

  • It should be noted that several public figures like Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, Ivanka Trump, Rihanna, among others, attended the event.

  • If Musk had been a part of the event, then there would have news reports indicating the same.

Passing the image through detection tools: We passed the image through two tools namely — 'Hive Moderation' and 'Is It AI?' and found that both of them showed a high probability of the viral image being an AI-generated one.

  • The tool said that there is over 99 percent chance of the image being AI-generated.
