Since the news of Kiara Advani’s wedding to Sidharth Malhotra in Jaisalmer surfaced last week, social media platforms have been buzzing with excitement over the news. While many took the opportunity to  congratulate the couple, others shared images and videos claiming to be from the wedding festivities. Now, a video showing Advani and Malhotra on the dance floor is being shared widely, with many claiming that it shows the actors grooving at their pre-wedding celebrations in Jaisalmer. Newschecker found that the video is not recent and is being shared out of context.

Instagram user Quick Khabar shared the video of the couple dancing to the tune of Bollywood song “Hookah bar” with the caption, “Kiara Advani and Sidharth Malhotra dancing and enjoying at their pre wedding party..”

Several Twitter users shared the video of the “bride-to-be,” and “groom-to-be” dancing together. Though the visuals were the same, the audio heard in these videos was different from the song in the clip shared by @quickkhabar on Instagram.
