A video of two teenagers singing the Ramayan TV serial title song on a talent show in the UK is doing the rounds on the internet.
“Watch this pair singing the title song of Ramayan, in UK talent show. One is Indian British boy & the other is a British boy…,” the Facebook post read.
Here’s the link to the above post.
NewsMobile fact-checked the post and found it to be fake.
We ran a Reverse Image Search on keyframes from the video and found the same video on YouTube published on May 11, 2014. The title of the video read, ‘Britain’s Got Talent S08E05 Bars & Melody Duo Rap an original anti-bullying song Simon surprise’.
After watching the video, we found out that the viral clip in circulation has been edited.
To confirm this, we checked the verified YouTube account of Britain’s Got Talent and found the same video in which the teen rappers sang an English song against bullying and not the Ramayana serial title song.
Hence, it is evident that the video is edited to make it look as though the teenagers sang the Ramayan serial title song.
Hence, we can say that the video in circulation is altered and the claim is fake.
