Don't believe everything you see. Actress Mahira Khan 'vouched' for actor Javed Sheikh after a video of their alleged awkward interaction went viral. "Woke up to such silly stuff floating around. It's good to be aware and have an opinion but for God's sake don't use anything and everything to make news," Mahira tweeted recently.

Javed Sheikh is a veteran Pakistani actor with films such as Main Hoon Shahid Afridi and Kalay Chor to his credit. Javed Sheikh has featured in several Bollywood films such as Namastey London, Om Shanti Om, Apne and Happy Bhag Jayegi.

A similar incident occurred during Oscars 2015 and it included actors Scarlet Johansson and John Travolta. The Internet accused Mr Travolta of being "creepy" after a picture of him kissing Ms Johansson on the cheek went viral. She later defended John Travolta and told the Associated Press: "The image that is circulating is an unfortunate still-frame from a live-action encounter that was very sweet and totally welcome. There is nothing strange, creepy or inappropriate about John Travolta."
