Megastar Amitabh Bachchan was caught on the wrong foot after he praised a synchronised dance performance by a group of women, which his fans pointed out was fake. After a video clip of the women dancing in tandem, claimed to be shot in China, appeared, Amitabh posted on Twitter: "wow .. even their locks of hair move in sync..."

His fans were quick to point out the folly. One wrote: "It's a fake video sir..well edited thats all..".
"I doubt...computer generated...old post.." remarked another.
"Was watching Agneepath yesterday... Yeh duniya bahot bighdeli hai Gaitonde Saheb.."
One user posted a meme of Bollywood diva Rekha looking dazed. Another meme was of a child in deep slumber.
