Fact Check: Kangana did not celebrate Vijay Diwas with BSF jawans

Hyderabad: A set of images of Kangana Ranaut is widely being shared on social media.

Fact Check

The claim is False.

NewsMeter began its investigation by performing a keyword search, which led us to a report published on Navodaya Times on September 02, 2017. It carried the viral images.

According to the report, Kangana Ranaut had reached the BSF camp for the promotion of her film 'Rangoon'. She spent a day with the soldiers.

This news was also reported by Hindustan Times on February 18, 2017.

"A sunny morning in Jammu became brighter as Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut landed at the airport to meet and greet the jawans of BSF Frontier Headquarter Jammu. From passengers to security personnel, everyone seemed excited to see the Queen actor there. Wearing an olive green sweater and striped skirt, Kangana was welcomed by officers with a bouquet. Before getting into her car, the 29-year-old star obliged fans with selfies," Hindustan Times reported.

The team further found a tweet by the official handle of Border Security Force (BSF) India on February 07, 2017.

"Kangana Ranaut visited #BSF Jammu & paid tribute at Martyrs memorial. Remembered supreme sacrifice made by #Bordermen & their proud families," BSF tweeted.

It is therefore evident that the claim is False.

The viral images are of 2017 when Kangana Ranaut had visited the BSF frontier headquarters in Jammu and Kashmir to promote her movie 'Rangoon'.
