Fake news: As the Shah Rukh Khan starrer-Pathaan sets new records at the box office, a viral video shows an altercation between two groups. A poster of the movie Pathaan can be seen in the background. The video is being shared with the claim that Shah Rukh Khan Fans are assaulting Bajrang Dal members in a theatre.

Fact-check: The viral claim is misleading. The TOI report notes that a clash broke out between two groups over cold drinks during Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Pathaan’ movie screening at a cinema hall in Amroha. Police arrested two people in connection with the clash after the video went viral, and the incident happened after the late-night show of the movie got finished.
