NewsMobile fact-checked the post, and found it to be old.

Running a Reverse Image Search, we found the same video uploaded by the YouTube Channel Qbiz Events, dated May 20, 2018, with a title: Grand entry of Shah Rukh Khan (SRK) at Kalyan Jewellers opening in Doha, Qatar Qbiz Events

The video description reads: Shah Rukh Khan’s grand entry for Kalyan Jewellers opening in Doha, Qatar | #SRK | Kalyan Jewellers l Celebrating Qatar l Qbiz Events. Shah Rukh Khan arrived on stage to the sound of hundreds of fans screaming and chanting his name as he flew into Doha for a brief visit for the inauguration of the new Kalyan Jewellers outlet in Doha-Qatar. SRK was accompanied by Kalyan Jewellers Chairman and Managing Director T.S. Kalyanaraman and executive directors Rajesh Kalyanaraman and Ramesh Kalyanaraman for the inauguration ceremony. Other special guests included Ambassador of India to #Qatar HE P Kumaran, CEO of #Doha Bank R Seetharaman

In the video, we could also see Kalyan written on the board on the stage.

The Qatar-Tribune Newspaper also uploaded clips from the inauguration on their YouTube Channel on April 27, 2018.

Hence, it is clear that an old video has been shared with a misleading claim.
