On Sunday, several reports claimed that BTS’s leader RM, Kim Nam-joon, posted Indian television actor and Big Boss 13 contestant Mahira Sharma’s photograph on his Instagram account and later deleted it. The reports also claimed that BTS ARMY went into a tizzy and assumed that the rapper would be collaborating with Sharma.
Meanwhile, several BTS fans rubbished the claims saying that it was an Instagram glitch and urged not to spread fake news. The purported photograph of Sharma was originally posted on her official Instagram account on April 5 and RM’s post features his visit to a museum. The post including ten photographs shared two days ago was captioned, “Lilac” as per translation.
That’s not at all true!! It’s a Instagram Glitch!!! RM ke pass koi aur kam nahi hai? … That they’ll collab with Mahira come on don’t spread fake news! Bts members are very soft and sensitive dont spread negative news!
There isn’t any picture if Mahira Sharma in his posts! pic.twitter.com/nceJMFsJcT

Idk, I don’t even think it’s real? Like first of all RM is a rapper, not a singer and second, he never posted about Mahira. Must be a clout chasing move🤔

A Twitter user shared a screenshot alleging that RM posted Sharma’s photograph, 31 minutes ago. However, there is no blue tick symbol indicating a verified account, next to ‘rkive’, RM’s Instagram user name. The user later shared another screenshot taken after two hours with a blue tick symbol and claimed it to be the fourth photograph shared by RM.

RM’s post consists of ten photographs, and it should be noted that collaboration announcements are usually made by their company, not by the band members. In fact, the international ARMY have not reacted at all, if there was such a photo in the first place.
Meanwhile, the fans have been left delighted with Jimin’s song “With You” for the series Our Blues breaking records. The BTS Army is also eagerly waiting for the release of the group’s next album on June 10.
