Truth

The image is edited, there is no such news shown by Zee News yet.

There are few different news regarding 15th June and Lockdown, but not that it will start from 15th June –

Below image is a comparison of the viral image and Zee News Breaking News format.

1. Zee News colors are bright red color but the viral one is almost Maroon
2. The Maroon color takes up entire screens with text which is not the case with real ones.
3. The Hindi fonts are different, the viral one doesn’t match the real ones.
4. If there is a bottom strip, Zee News never hides it while in the viral one it can clearly bee seen different then the real.
5. While the left and right part of the real image matches with the viral one, in the viral one, rest of the part is added with Hindi text hiding the bar.

Following are the usual formats of Zee News, none of which matches with the viral one.
