Fact Check: Truth behind viral video of BJP leader's son creating ruckus on Dance India Dance

A viral video of a prank on Zee TV’s reality show, Dance India Dance, is being shared out of context with the claim that a BJP leader’s son created a ruckus after getting rejected.

Several users have shared the video with the claim, “A BJP top leader’s son auditioning for Dance India Dance (Noida edition) created a disgusting & shameless scene along with his father & other goons. Welcome to “REAL” India ! Jai Ho.”

The contestant says that his father is a builder in Noida and threatens the judges of severe consequences if they don’t select him.

The video uploaded by user Casper Tariang was viewed over 33,000 times.

However, the viral clip is a shorter version of the original video and does not show the part where the producers reveal that it was a prank on the judge, Punit Pathak.

FACT CHECK

According to Quint fact check, the incident is from the fifth season of the reality dance competition show, Dance India Dance (DID), aired in 2015, when the producers along with judges, Mudassar Khan and Gaiti Siddiqui, had played a prank on Pathak.

The first episode of season five on DID aired on 27 June 2015 where the ‘drama’ begins at timestamp 40:00 when the contestant states that his father is a builder in Noida, and has several contacts to ensure his win.

Five minutes into the prank, the drama escalates, with Pathak getting up on stage. The music then changes at time stamp 46:20 and it’s revealed that this was indeed a prank on one of the judges and the contestant and “his father” was only acting.

FINAL VERDICT:

Evidently, the video has been cut short and shared with incomplete information to suggest that the son of BJP leader had created a ruckus on the show.
