A viral picture of Bollywood superstars Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone has risen a huge brawl on social media alleging their connection with underworld and thus terrorist Dawood Ibrahim. In a picture which has spread on public network, Ranveer and Deepika are about to have food along with a few other people, including producer Sandip Ssingh, who is believed to be involved in alleged suicide of Sushant Singh Rajput recently. Along with these three, a man sitting next to them was supposed to be gangster Dawood Ibrahim. But according to Anti Fake News War Room (AFWA) by AajTak, the proposition of the man alleged to be Dawood is declared as fake.
फेसबुक पर एक तस्वीर वायरल हो रही है जिसमें दीपिका पादुकोण, रणवीर सिंह, सुशांत सिंह के दोस्त संदीप एस सिंह और दो अन्य लोग दिख रहे हैं. दावा किया जा रहा है कि इनमें से एक व्यक्ति भगोड़ा अंडरवर्ल्ड डॉन दाऊद इब्राहिम है. क्या यह सच है? #AFWAFactCheck#FactCheck #SandipSsingh pic.twitter.com/gGIVUgpaqI

Aaj Tak claimed that the same picture was uploaded by Pinkvilla a few years ago, and it belongs from Iftaar party of Ram-Leela’s set. In the same picture director Sanjay Leela Bhansali also joined the actors for the Iftaari, however in the photo which went viral Bhansali was cropped, making it an unclear picture of Deepika-Ranveer and Sansip Ssingh sitting with Ibrahim. The speculation becomes falsified.
Ranveer and Deepika Padukone although did not open up about the picture from their side.
