Old unrelated video shared as visuals of Shah Rukh Khan attending FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022


A video is being shared through a Facebook post claiming it as the visuals of Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘big entry’ at the 2022 edition of the FIFA World Cup held in Qatar. Let’s fact-check this claim through this article.

Claim: Video of Shah Rukh Khan’s entry at the 2022 FIFA world cup.

Fact: This video is from May 2018, which was captured when Shah Rukh Khan attended an opening ceremony of Kalyan Jewelers in the capital city of Qatar, Doha. Hence the claim made in the post is FALSE.

On watching the video, one can notice a logo that appears at the beginning of the 1-minute 30-second viral video. The logo’s words are written in Arabic script and English; the latter reads qbiz. Based on this hint, we formulated keywords and searched the internet for these visuals, leading us to a YouTube video uploaded on a channel named Qbiz events.

The title of the 1 minute 34 seconds video reads ‘Grand Entry Of Shah Rukh Khan ( SRK ) At Kalyan Jewellers Opening In Doha – Qatar – Qbiz Events.‘ the visuals of the viral video match those of this video. News reports of this event from 2018 can be accessed here and here.

To sum up, an old and unrelated video is shared as visuals of Shah Rukh Khan attending FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.
