Fact check: Photos of Rs 2000 notes used for decoration at Anil Ambani's son's birthday are FAKE

Social media users are sharing the image widely, without even verifying the details and are criticising Anil Ambani 'for such a move'.

A photo claiming to be of businessman Anil Ambani’s home is going viral on social media. Several people are claiming in the messages that his house was decorated with currency notes for his son’s birthday. Social media users are sharing the image widely and are criticising the business tycoon for ‘showoff’.

But did anyone care to think why will the business tycoon, need fake notes of Rs 2000 and 500 denomination for celebration? People are believing in the image to be real and are forwarding it. Of course, they did not care to notice closely to see whether it was fake or not. The fact is that all these notes are just fake, merely printouts of something that resembles the actual currency.

The notes have a bank name printed on them, just like any real note has Reserve Bank of India written on them. But these do not have the name of the Central bank but in fact bore the name “Sahjanand Bank of Bhuj”.
