But, megastar Amitabh Bachchan pointed out that there is a possibility that the picture has been photoshopped. He wrote: “. with due respect and apology .. i feel this is photoshopped .. notice that the hand that holds the chappal is different than the rest of his body in size .. to his other hand by his side !!

Well, after he made this point, several Twitter users had something to opine on the same:
Ya..sir ..right hand thumb is missing

I think it's not photoshopped. The hand is not as big as it seems to be, if you look closely. This is a distortion because of shooting from the short distance..

Not photoshopped. One kid is wearing the other chappal.
And he is the only one who wears one. They show beautifully... happiness is not what you have, happiness is who you are! pic.twitter.com/cDqN3Pe3Ye

Twitterati verdict stood divided on whether this selfie was photoshopped or real.
More often than not, heartwarming pictures and videos are circulated on the web and sometimes they do turn out to be doctored or touched.
However, coming back to this one—the authenticity cannot be vouched for as yet as no one has come forward and claimed to have clicked it.
Meanwhile, tell us what do you think about the 'selfie'?
