A photo of three girls at a beach has been going viral on social media with a claim that they are Javed Akhtar’s daughters.
The caption of the picture read: “बुरखे की पैरवी करने वाले जावेद अख्तर की बेटियाँ”
(Translation: “Daughters of Javed Akhtar, who advocated the burqa.”)
At the time of filing this report, the above post was shared by over 9,000 Facebook users.
NewsMobile fact-checked the above posts and found that the claim is FAKE.
On putting the picture through Reverse Image Search, we found a similar picture on Bollywood actor Aamir Khan’s daughter, Ira Khan’s verified Instagram handle.
On checking the tags, we found that the girl on the left is Zayn Khan, Aamir Khan’s niece.
Moreover, Javed Akhtar has only one daughter- Zoya Akhtar.
Hence, the above information proves that girls in the viral picture are not Javed Akhtar’s daughter.
