FACT CHECK

NewsMobile fact-checked the viral claim, and found it to be false.

According to a news report in Navodaya Times, dated September 2, 2017, Kangana was promoting her film Rangoon at an Army camp in Jammu.

On further checking, we also found a video news report by The Indian Express uploaded on YouTube. The video description explains that Kangana met the BSF jawans and had a nice interaction with them. She paid her respect and saluted their courage and commitment towards the country.

NewsMobile debunked the same image in 2021, when it was shared as Kangana celebrating Vijay Diwas with BSF jawans.

Fact Check: No, Kangana Ranaut Did NOT Celebrate Vijay Diwas With BSF Jawans

Therefore, we can conclusively say that an image from 2017 is widely circulated with false claims.
