NewsMobile fact-checked the above picture and found it to be doctored.
On putting the picture through Reverse Image Search, we came across the original picture which actually featured former Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
On digging further we found that the picture was from 2011 when both leaders met on the sidelines of the ASEAN Summit in Nusa Dua, Bali on November 18, 2011.
In the above FAKE vs REAL collage it is clear that Iranian President Hassan Rouhani’s picture cutout was superimposed on the original picture using photo editing software.
