Fact Check

NewsMeter performed a keyword search and found multiple videos of the incident on the official YouTube channel of Mirchi Plus from 29 May 2016.


In the video, Arjun Kapoor slaps the RJ, pushes the cameraman, and throws the cameras on the floor. Suddenly, the RJ bursts out in laughter and says that it was all a prank and also warns viewers not to try this at home. He also wishes everyone a Happy April's Fool Day.

To further confirm the claim, we searched Google for media reports about the incident and found a report by Inshorts. It said, "A video where actor Arjun Kapoor was shown slapping a Radio Mirchi RJ was revealed as an April Fools' Day prank."

It is evident that actor Arjun Kapoor did not slap a Radio Mirchi RJ. It was a prank. Hence, the claim is misleading.
