A picture has been made viral over the Internet claiming it to be the last phase image of Irrfan Khan in ICU.
Irrfan Khan, a stoic actor has deliberately delivered phenomenal work in Karwaan, Hindi Medium, Angreji Medium, Life Of Pi and many more. It is disheartening to accept the fact that we will no longer be seeing him on the big screen.
The actor was diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumour in 2018 and took his last breaths on April 29 at Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital suffering from a colon infection.
It’s exasperating how people are coming up with morphed images of the deceased and spreading fake news.
A few days after Irrfan Khan’s demise, a poorly morphed image has been spreading like a wildfire over the Internet. The caption says, ‘Checkout last moment of Irrfan Khan in ICU.’
Many people got dragged into believing that the image was truly captured during the last moments of the legendary actor’s life. However, these images are a result of photoshop work. This picture was shared on Facebook and YouTube.
As per the research done by Asianet Newsable, it reveals that the same picture was showed up in New York Times article but with the face of a different man. They performed a Google Reverse Image Search, which spilt the beans on the truth.
It showed an Indian man in Alabama, US, who was assaulted by police in February 2015. This reveals that the image that shows a death-like pallor on Irrfan’s face is a hoax and poorly morphed.
