Hyderabad: A song by Bollywood actor Salman Khan, with a message of communal harmony and brotherhood between different communities, is being shared on social media with the claim that the actor dedicated the song to Rahul Gandhi and Bharat Jodo Yatra—the foot march undertaken by the Congress party.
Similar claims are being made on Twitter too.
The 3,500 km foot march over 150 days has reached Kerala and is scheduled to enter Karnataka on Friday.
NewsMeter ran a keyword search but did not find any news report that said actor Salman Khan has dedicated a song to Rahul Gandhi or the Bharat Jodo Yatra.
Using keywords from the song and the actor's name, we again ran a keyword search and found a music video titled "Bhai Bhai" uploaded on Salman Khan's verified YouTube channel. The music video was uploaded on 24 May 2020. The viral clip has been taken from this video.
The song is from 2020 while the Bharat Jodo Yatra was launched in 2022. Also, we did not find any reports that confirmed that Salman Khan dedicated a song to the Bharat Jodo Yatra. Hence, the claim is false.
