Fact Check:

The claim is false.

NewsMeter looked closely at the name shown in the video and found that the name of the college student is spelled as 'Muskahan' instead of Muskan.

We can clearly spot the image of Muskan exceeding the contours of the Burj Khalifa building as if it has been superimposed. This is also evident from the viral video.


In the 2.50 minute video, the scene of Burj Khalifa disappears after 1 minute and only the name can be seen.

Searching on the official page of Burj Khalifa, we found the original video and did not find any picture or name of the college student.

We compared the viral video with the video posted on the official page of Burj Khalifa. The image is edited. The image of a college student is morphed.

In case visuals of Muskan Khan were featured on Burj Khalifa, Indian media would have reported it. However, we could not find any such reports.


Hence, the claim is false. The video is edited.


Claim Review:Muskan Khan's name featured on Burj Khalifa in Dubai.
