A day before the release of Shahrukh khan Pathaan’s movie, a 39-second-long video of allegedly Shahrukh khan dancing at a wedding found its way to social media. 

The video has gone viral on social media where a section of users sharing it in a bid to take a dig at Shahrukh Khan with #BoycottPathaan.

A Twitter user named Saffron Swamy posted the video with the caption that reads “ Who is Shahrukh Khan? Dancing at Someone’s wedding at the age of 60, for a few bucks as paid worker.

Fact Check/Verification

To Investigate the video, we search the Internet with relevant keywords like “Shahrukh dance at Wedding” and Shahrukh marriage dance” which led us to a number of Shahrukh dance videos on youtube. 

While scanning the videos on youtube we came across a video which seems identical to the viral clip. 

The video was a youtube short clip posted on 12 July 2022 by a person name Ibrahim Qadri on his official youtube channel @IbrahimQadri

We also visited Ibrahim Qadri’s social media profiles on Facebook and Instagram, according to which Qadri is a performing artist. 

His pictures on social media looks identical to Shahrukh Khan’s and one may easily confuse him with the actor.
