It was found that the picture was not a satellite image of India during the nine minutes lighting activity, but rather a photoshopped image of the #MeToo movement.
Soon after Bachchan's tweet went viral on social media, netizens began trolling him for sharing "fake WhatsApp forward".
PM Narendra Modi had appealed to the nation to switch off all lights of houses on April 5 at 9 PM for 9 minutes, and just light a candle, 'diya', or flashlight, to show the unity of Indians in the fight against coronavirus.
