NewsMobile fact-checked the viral post, and found it to be false.

Running a Reverse Image Search of the video keyframes, the NM team identified an Instagram Post on the official handle of Viral Bhayani — a celebrity reporter, dated September 20, 2023. Certain parts of the video match with the viral clip, informing that the video shows Salman Khan seeking blessings at Ambani Ganesh Darshan. 

Checking further, we found another Instagram video on Viral Bhayani’s account showing SRK at the same event as Salman Khan. This confirms that the viral clip has been edited,  showing both Bollywood stars at the Ganesh Pooja at Ambani’s residence. 

The final part of the viral clip showing SRK and Salman in a different outfit can be seen in a YouTube video by CNBC-TV18, dated September 24, 2023. The video shows both the actors visiting Maharashtra CM Eknath Shinde’s residence for the Ganpati celebration. 

Also, The Times of India reports that both the actors — SRK and Salman — had not been invited for the consecration ceremony on January 22, 2024. Even Amir Khan was not invited. 

Therefore, we can conclusively say that the viral post is misleading.
