Fact Check: Viral Post Of Kangana Being Criticised In A Song Is Quite Old And Misleading

Date:

A video showing two people singing a song criticising actor-politician Kangana Ranaut is being widely circulated on social media. The post claims that people in Punjab are supporting CISF constable Kulwinder Kaur, who allegedly slapped Ranaut during a security check at Chandigarh airport on June 6. Kaur reportedly stated that her action was in response to Ranaut’s derogatory remarks against the protesting farmers in 2020.

The video is shared on Facebook with a caption: “कंगना रनौत थप्पड़ कांड: पंजाब और किसान CISF की कुलविंदर कौर के साथ खड़ा हो गया है. गीत लिखे जाने लगे हैं. कंगना रनौत बीजेपी के लिये मुसीबत बनेगी हरियाणा चुनाव में.” (English version: See below.👇)

FACT CHECK 

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

Performing a Reverse Image Search, the NM team captured a longer version of the viral video, uploaded by a YouTube channel — RAMNEEK-SIMRITA — on December 6, 2020. The News reports indicate that two sisters from Mohali, Punjab, composed several songs related to the farmers’ protests.

The title of the YouTube video states that the song is a reaction to comments made by Kangana Ranaut and Payal Rohatgi. In the video, the singers – Ramneek and Simrita – introduce themselves and explain that they have written the song in response to the disparaging remarks made by Ranaut and Rohatgi about the farmers.

A similar video, posted on December 6, 2020, with Punjabi lyrics in the caption, is available on their Instagram page.

Thus, we can conclusively say that the video showing two people singing a song criticising Kangana is old and misleading.
