Our Investigation

We did a reverse image search to find that the lady in the image is not Mrs Gautam Adani. The name of Gautam Adani's wife is Priti Adani who is also the chairperson of Adani Foundation. Here is a picture of Mrs Priti Adani and Gautam Adani.

When we did a reverse image search of the picture, we found that the picture shows PM Narendra Modi greeting Ms. Geetha Rudresh, ex-Mayor of Tumkur City Corporation, Karnataka. The image was shared on Reddit in 2014. a TOI journalist had also shared the same image on 25th September 2014.

We also found a report by Navbharat Times debunking the viral image.
