Kiran Bedi has shared a scene from a 2017 shark movie on Twitter, believing National Geographic paid $1 million for the footage.

Kiran Bedi, retired IPS officer and former Lt Governor of Puducherry, has shared a clip on Twitter that falsely claims that National Geographic paid $1 million for the unfolding scene. In reality, it’s a scene from a 2017 TV movie ‘5 Headed Shark Attack’, reports Alt News. In it, a gigantic fish can be seen leaping out of the water to attack a helicopter, hauling it down into the water as horrified onlookers watch. Many Twitter users trolled her for apparently believing it to be true.

However, this is not the first time that Bedi has shared an obviously fake piece of information on Twitter. Here’s a rundown of all the other times she shared such information.

‘Sun chants Om’

NASA has released actual videos of what the Sun sounds like, which are free on YouTube and can be found with a quick Google search. Needless to say, it doesn’t chant ‘Om’.

‘PM Modi’s Mother Celebrating Diwali’

In 2019, Bedi posted a video of an old lady dancing, with the caption, “Spirit of Deepavali at tender age of 97. She’s mother of @narendramodi (Hiraben Modi -1920) celebrating Diwali at her own home.” It wasn’t Modi’s mother. She corrected herself later.

Bedi has not so far removed any of the gaffes from her Twitter page, even though several users have pointed out the glaring mistakes in the comments each time.
