Hyderabad: A photo of Prime Minister Narendra Modi meeting Indian cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar and his wife is doing the rounds of social media.A framed photograph of Reliance Industries chairman Mukesh Ambani and his wife can be seen hanging on the walls. Social media users are implying that a photo of the "master", that is the Ambanis, hangs in the Prime Minister's office.




Fact Check:

The claim is FALSE.

NewsMeter searched for photos of Mr. Modi's meeting with Sachin Tendulkar and found news reports with similar images from May 2017. The framed photograph in these news reports is NOT of Mukesh Ambani. The meeting took place in 2017 when Tendulkar, accompanied by his wife, met the PM to brief him ahead to release of the movie 'Sachin: A Billion Dreams'.

Tendulkar also tweeted similar photographs with the caption, "Thank you for your inspiring message @narendramodi ji 'Jo khele, Wahi khile!' Could not have agreed more. #SachinABillionDreams."

We can clearly see two different photographs in the images, none of which has Mukesh Ambani in them.
