This picture was earlier shared by many users with the same claim which can be seen here, here and here. Come on, let’s go through the facts behind this viral post.

What’s the truth?

She has posted the same image saying “Thank you Colors Tv”. She further added in the description of the image stating, “My father is a truck driver and he made sure being in poverty, I should get good education. He had many accidents while driving but he drove day and night. My childhood dream was to take my dad on a plane. I fulfilled my wish at the age of 38 by joining the Colors Tamil Viacom18”.

Moreover, when we searched further, we found out that the woman seen in the viral picture is a writer who writes in the language Tamil and she been invited to many TV shows as special guest. One such occasion can be seen while she appeared in “Doordarshan Podhigai”.

Let’s see comparison of both the images below that shows that both are same person.

She is serving as an Executive Director in Colors TV since November 2017 and she is from Tamil Nadu which is clearly mentioned in her Linkedin profile.


Therefore, through our research we conclude that the woman in the viral claim is not from Madhya Pradesh or neither an IAS officer. In reality, her name is Vimala Pon and she is an Executive Director of Colors TV and a Tamil writer.
