Fact Check: Viral Images Of SRK’s Childhood Are AI-Generated


A couple of pictures have surfaced on social media claiming to be of Shah Rukh Khan during his childhood.

One of the Facebook users posted with a caption: “बॉलीवुड के किंग कहे जाने वाले शाहरुख खान बचपन में कुछ ऐसे क्यूट दिखते थे (English translation: Shah Rukh Khan, known as the King of Bollywood, looked so cute in his childhood.)”

NewsMobile fact-checked the above claim, and found them to be AI-generated.

Running a Reverse Image Search on the first picture, our NM team found the same picture in a gallery uploaded on the Filmfare magazine website, dated August 31, 2023. This information shows that the picture was artificially generated.

Using Hive Moderation — a tool used for assessing AI-generated images — for the second image, we found the photo was AI-generated with 65.2%.

Hence, we can conclusively say that the viral pictures claiming to depict SRK in his childhood are AI-generated.
