A video of two people dancing to the song 'Besharam Rang' from the upcoming film Pathaan, starring Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone is going viral on social media.
But..?: The video shows one Mehroz Baig, a media student from Pakistan's Karachi dancing to the song.
Baig told The Quint that the video is of a wedding event that took place on 8 January in Karachi, where he performed with the bride's sister.
How did we find out?: Using relevant keywords, we looked for more information regarding the viral video.
The search led us to a report by Hindustan Times which carried the video, mentioning that a video of Bhutto's lookalike was going viral on social media.
It identified the man dancing in the video as one Mehroz Baig, a media student from Pakistan's Karachi.
A report by The Economic Times, too, identified the man as Baig.
Taking a cue from these reports, we looked for Baig on social media.
We saw that this video was the same as the viral video in the claim, but shot from a different angle.
Baig's account shared another video as a collaboration Inaya Khan, where the duo are seen dancing.
Here, Baig appears to have added a jacket to his outfit for this performance.
