Truth

The portrait unveiled by President of India in Rastrapati Bhavan is indeed of Shubhash Chandra Bose and not of actor Prosenjit Bose as claimed by journalists etc today

We cropped the portrait of Neta Ji from entire image and reverse search it which led us to a black and white photo tweeted by Shubhas Chandra Bose’s GrandNephew last year

He tweeted the original photo today claiming the colored portrait, unveiled today was painted by renowned artist Shri Paresh Maity.

The director of the movie Gumnaami, in which actor Prosenjit Chaterjee played the role of Neta Ji Subhash Chandra Bose, also cleared the issue today

You can also see the difference below, while the left black and white photo is of Shubhash Chandra Bose (little touched) the right one is of the actor Prosenjit Chaterjee in the movie Gumnaami
