Fact Check

NewsMeter found that the viral clip dates back to 2018 and shows the review of Shahrukh Khan, Katrina Kaif, and Anushka Sharma's starrer “Zero.”

We performed a reverse image search of the video’s keyframe, which led us to a video of a public review of the film “Zero” published by a verified YouTube channel FilmiFever on 21 December 2018.

The 7.21-minute-long video shows the mixed opinions of moviegoers on Zero. At around the 2.31-minute mark, the viral clip appears in this video.

It is evident that the viral clip is from 2018 and shows people commenting on SRK’s film “Zero.” Hence, we conclude that the video does not show the review of Pathaan, and the claim is misleading.

Claim Review:The video shows the public's review of Pathaan.
