    The photograph has been widely shared on Indian social media, with a prominent celebrity also giving his take on it; the famed actor said the image appears to be fake, but the photographer who posted it vouched for its authenticity and insisted that it wasn't altered in any way.

    A photo of five Indian kids posing in front of a camera-styled slipper has been making waves on social media. 

    ​One person tweeted that happiness is a "state of mind".

    The photo was briefly mired in controversy when famed Indian actor Amitabh Bachchan tweeted that the photo seemed to have been photoshopped as there were some symmetrical mismatches and size distortions. Photographer Atul Kasbeka "respectfully" set the record straight, saying that he had checked with three post-production experts who all confirmed that the issues raised by the actor were, in fact, a matter of perspective distortion, something that often happens on smartphones.
