On 22 April, many Guwahati dailies carried a photo of Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone along with an Assam Cricket Association secretary Bikash Baruah. It was an IPL meeting, and according to Baruah, who distributed the photograph to reporters, he had asked Khan and Padukone to form an IPL team from the Northeast. As it turned out, it was not Baruah in the picture. It was Sourav Ganguly on whose face Baruah’s had been superimposed. According to an Indian Express article, an FIR against Baruah under some sections of the IPC and Information Technology Act has been filed by the Freelance Journalists’ Association. Baruah has applied for and received anticipatory bail from the Guwahati High Court.
