A screenshot of a tweet purportedly made by Rani Mukherjee is being shared by many users on Facebook. The text in the tweet reads as follows- “My country-men expect me to celebrate Independence Day at a time when they have caged over 14 million Kashmiris. How can you celebrate your independence by snatching autonomy of millions of people? Atleast I CAN’T. #15AugustBlackDay”. Let’s try to analyze the authenticity of the tweet in the screenshot.

The archived version of the post can be found here.

Claim: Rani Mukherji has tweeted- “My country-men expect me to celebrate Independence Day at a time when they have caged over 14 million Kashmiris. How can you celebrate your independence by snatching autonomy of millions of people? Atleast I CAN’T. #15AugustBlackDay”. 

Fact: The tweet attributed to Rani Mukherji is from a parody account. Rani Mukherji doesn’t have any official Twitter account. So, the claim made in the post stands FALSE.

The screenshot posted is from the twitter handle ‘@RANIMUKHERJI’. When looked for this account on Twitter, it was found that it is a ‘parody’ account (clear from the description). This account even had the tweet seen in the screenshot.

Rani Mukherji doesn’t have an official Twitter account. Even earlier, when tweets supposedly made by Rani Mukherji went viral, her office issued a statement– “This is to reiterate that Rani Mukerji is not on any social media platform and has never been in the past. There are several imposters who are operating various handles in her name, so we request you to disregard the same”.

To conclude, this tweet attributed to Rani Mukherji is from a parody account. Rani Mukherjee doesn’t have any official Twitter account.
