A video is being shared on social media claiming it as the visuals of two children helping a handicapped man to fix the broken chain of his tricycle. Let’s verify the claim made in the post.

The archived version of the post can be seen here.

Claim: Video of two children helping a handicapped man to fix the problem in his tricycle.

Fact: The video shared in the post is a scripted one. Kannada actress Sanjjanaa Galrani had first shared this video on her Facebook page on 16 February 2022. Sanjjanaa Galrani described the video as a scripted drama created for entertainment and educational purposes. Hence, the claim made in the post is FALSE.

On observing the video carefully, during the final few seconds of the video, we could see a disclaimer displayed at the bottom of the video. The text in the disclaimer states, “Thank you for watching! Please be aware that this page features scripted dramas and parodies as well. These short films are for educational purposes only!”.

On reverse image search of the screenshots of the video, a video with similar visuals was found posted on the Kannada actress Sanjjanaa Galrani’s Facebook page on 16 February 2022. Sanjjanaa Galrani described the video as a scripted drama or parody created for educational purposes. Similar scripted dramas on humanity were found posted on Sanjjanaa Galrani’s Facebook page. A few of them can be seen here and here.

Earlier, when similar scripted drama videos were shared as the real incident visuals on social media, FACTLY published fact-check articles debunking those claims. They can be read here and here.

To sum it up, a scripted video is being shared as a real incident of two children helping a handicapped man to fix his tricycle problem on a road.

Share.
