Fact Check: Did Virat Kohli Announce His Online Casino? Viral Clip Is A Deepfake


As Virat Kohli makes his return to cricket after a break for the upcoming season of IPL 2024, a video of him announcing his online casino has gone viral on social media. Many users claim that new users are guaranteed to win ₹50,000 within three days.

A Facebook user posted the video with a caption: अब भारत में आधिकारिक सबसे लोकप्रिय ऐप 92% खिलाड़ियों ने आज 600,000INR से अधिक जीते

(English Translation: The most popular app in India, where 92% players won more than 600,000INR today.)

NewsMobille Fact-checked the claim, and found it to be FALSE.

Conducting a Reverse Image Search of the video keyframe, the NM team discovered the original clip on YouTube, dated December 22, 2023, with a title: “Dad’s death, Sachin’s gesture and diet | Full Interview.”

The video is an excerpt from the interaction between the Indian cricketer and host Graham Bensinger. In the video, Kohli can be seen wearing the same attire as in the viral video.

Virat can be seen discussing career ascension, the death of his father, childhood, and the Indian Premier League in the video, but the batsman has not seen mentioned anything about the online casinos.

Thus, it is evident that Virat Kohli did not announce an online casino, and the viral video is a deepfake.
