A picture of PM Narendra Modi sitting with cricketer Sachin Tendulkar is doing rounds on the internet. In the background wall, a portrait of Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani and his wife Nita Ambani can be seen.
The caption in the post read, “लिजिए मालिक की फोटो ऑफिस मे अब और क्या सबूत चाहिए अंधभक्तो गुलामी का “(sic)
(Translation: Owner’s photo is in the office, what more proof of slavery do these blind devotees need)
NewsMobile fact-checked the above post and found that the picture is morphed.
On putting the picture through Reverse Image Search, we found the picture of PM Modi and Sachin Tendulkar in a report by The Indian Express published on May 19, 2017. A picture is hanging on the wall but it is not Ambani’s portrait.
As per the report, Tendulkar met PM Modi for the promotion of his biopic ‘Sachin: A Billion Dreams’ which was based on his life and cricketing career.
We found the same picture on PM Modi’s Twitter handle uploaded on May 19, 2017. In the picture, the original wall hanging can be seen.

On comparing both the pictures it becomes clear that Ambani’s portrait is not hanging in PM Modi’s office.
With the help of the above information, it is clear that the claim attached to the post is fake as the picture in PM Modi’s office is morphed.
