A video is being shared widely on social media with a claim that it shows ‘Jai Ho’ song from the movie ‘Slumdog Millionaire’, choreographed by the Chinese. Let’s try to analyze the claim made in the post.
Claim: Video of ‘Jai Ho’ song choreographed by the Chinese.
Fact: The video is related to ‘Spring Festival Gala 2019’ event. In the original video, the Chinese were not dancing to ‘Jai Ho’ song but doing martial arts to some other music. Hence the claim made in the post is FALSE.
When the screenshots of the posted video were run through Google Reverse Image Search, videos with similar visuals were found in the search results. In a video upload by CGTN on YouTube, it can be read that the video is related to ‘Spring Festival Gala 2019’ event. Also, on watching the video, it can be found that the Chinese were not dancing to the ‘Jai Ho’ song but doing martial arts to some other music. In the description of the video, it can be read that the performance was ‘presented by Henan Shaolin Tagou Martial Arts School, “The Soul of Shaolin” features traditional Chinese martial arts.’
To sum it up, in the video, the Chinese did not dance to the ‘Jai Ho’ song. It is an edited video.
