Fact Check

The claim is false.

NewsMeter performed a keyword search which led us to a video on the YouTube channel 'Rizwan Shaikh' uploaded on 3 October 2019. According to the title, the video is from IIFA awards 2019. The viral clip starts from 1:35 seconds.

The official Facebook page of IIFA Awards had also uploaded the video with the caption, "Salman Khan drove the audience crazy with his amazing performance during IIFA 2019 which was held in Mumbai, India!" The viral video clip can be seen from 1:56 seconds.

On 21 October 2019, the website India.com had published highlights of the IIFA awards and included a screengrab from the video showing Salman Khan along with Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal. According to the report, Salman Khan dedicated this song 'Tu hi tu harr jagah' to Katrina Kaif.

"One of the most remembered moments of the night remained Salman Khan performing on his hit numbers. He began his performance by crooning to 'Tu Hi Tu Har Jagah' and slowly walked off the stage towards Katrina Kaif who was sitting in the front row. He stopped in front of her, looked at her, and completed the song. Truly one of the most romantic moments of the night," read the report.

A report by Arab News from 9 December 2021 (the day Vicky Kaushal and Katrina Kaif tied the knot) said Salman Khan was attending a press conference in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, along with the entire cast of 'Da-bangg'.

Meanwhile, India Today reported that Ashley Rebello, Salman Khan's personal stylist who has also worked with Katrina Kaif, confirmed that the actor did not attend Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal's wedding. "Putting all the rumors to rest, Ashley has confirmed that Salman or any members of his family, including sister Arpita Khan, will not be part of the celebration," the report said and quoted Rebello as saying, "I am not invited. Neither is any member of (Salman Khan's) family."

It is therefore evident that the viral video does not show Salman Khan performing at Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal's wedding. It is from the 2019 IIFA awards. Hence, the claim is false.
