Fact Check: Old Video of People Bursting Crackers During Salman Khan’s Movie Falsely Linked to ‘Pathaan’


Shah Rukh Khan’s latest release Pathaan has earned over ₹700 crore worldwide in just nine days. People are showing up in large numbers at movie theatres with great enthusiasm. Against this backdrop, a video showing fireworks during the screening of a film in a theatre is widely shared on social media, claiming that it shows the movie screening of Pathaan. Many rockets can also be seen falling down after colliding with the ceiling of the hall.

The video is shared on Facebook with a caption: “Yeh to aKhri hai bhai |Pathan Movie ke dauran fire crackers”

Here’s the link to the above post


NewsMobile fact-checked the above claim, and found it to be MISLEADING. 

Commenting on the viral video, some people have written that this video is related to the film Last: The Final Truth. We found the same video uploaded on the official YouTube page of Bollywood Hungama, dated November 27, 2021, with a caption: “Salman Khan fans BURST CRACKERS in theatre during ANTIM screening”. 

When this video went viral in 2021, actor Salman Khan requested his fans through Instagram not to take firecrackers to theatres. Along with this, the fear was also expressed that by doing so a terrible accident could happen. He also requested the theatre owners not to allow people to carry firecrackers in the hall.

Many media websites like Hindustan Times, The Tribune and The Indian Express had  published reports regarding this incident. The film Antim: The Final Truth, released on November 26, 2021, was directed by Mahesh Manjrekar. In this, Salman Khan played the role of a Sikh policeman. His brother-in-law Ayush Sharma played the role of a gangster in this film.  

Recently, in the context of the film Pathaan, such videos also went viral showing people bursting firecrackers in the cinema hall. 

Thus, it is evident that an old video of people bursting crackers during the screening of a Salam Khan movie is falsely linked to Pathaan
