Hyderabad: A video of an auto rickshaw driver dancing on a flooded road is doing the round of social media with the claim that the video is from Sri Ganganagar in Rajasthan.

Fact Check:

NewsMeter found that the claim is false.

On 14 July 2022, The Times of India had published the same video with the headline "Viral video: Bhopal auto-rickshaw driver's rain dance has netizens smiling."

The video description read, "This video of a Bhopal auto-rickshaw driver has netizens smiling. His auto was stuck due to the flood water, but instead of crying over it, he came out and danced in the rain. He clearly took his lesson that when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. He surely tried to make a bad day better."

The video was also uploaded on YouTube by Times Now with the caption, "This Auto Driver's Dance In Bhopal Flood Water Is Breaking The Internet."


Several other reports claimed that the video was shot in Gujarat. (Read here and here.)

Hence, the claim that the video is from Sri Ganganagar in Rajasthan is false.
