Claim: Video of Rajdeep Sardesai being heckled after his latest interview with Rhea Chakraborty.

Fact: The incident in the video took place in 2014 when Narendra Modi made his first official visit to the US after he got elected as the Indian Prime Minister. Hence the claim made in the post is FALSE.

A simple google search with the keywords ‘Rajdeep heckled’ resulted in many news articles and videos which reported the same incident. According to one such video the incident took place in front of Madison Square Garden, New York back in September 2104 when Narendra Modi made his first official visit to the US after being elected as Indian Prime Minister. News article which reported the same can be read here. With this, we can say that this video is years old and not latest.

In the wake of his latest interview with Rhea Chakraborty on Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, this video is being widely shared with a false claim. Also, we found no news article or report about a mob heckling Rajdeep after his interview with Rhea Chakraborty.

To sum it up, the incident took place in 2014 in the US and not after his interview with Rhea Chakraborty.
