Video of brawl at Delhi’s Aerocity falsely viral as Ajay Devgn thrashed by farmers’ protestors

A video is circulating on social media with the claim that Bollywood actor Ajay Devgn was thrashed in Delhi. “This was bound to happen. But who is responsible for this? Where is the country headed? After a video of a politician beaten up, a clip of an actor (Ajay Devgn) getting thrashed is viral. This fake ‘Singham’ used to tweet a lot against farmers’ protest. He was duly welcomed in Delhi,” tweeted @G5MSabir005.

The above claim has been made against the backdrop of tweets by several Bollywood celebrities following international pop icon Rihanna’s tweet on farmers’ protest. On February 2, Rihanna tweeted a CNN report on internet shutdown in areas where farmers are protesting. The following day, multiple BJP office bearers, politicians, celebrities and right-wing influencers tweeted with the hashtag #IndiaAgainstPropaganda. Devgn was one of them. On March 2, Maharashtra police arrested a person for stopping his car over his tweet and demanding to know why the actor had not spoken in support of the protests.

The video has been shared on Facebook as well. One Sibly Shaikh Salmaan’s post gained close to 800 shares.

दिल्ली में अजय देवगन की सच्ची वाली ठुकाई होते होये
फिल्मों में नकली डिशम डिसम होती है अजय भाई
यहां पता चला असल कुटाई क्या होती है
किसान पुत्तर बनकर फिल्में बनाकर पैसे नाम कमाया और जब किसान बोडोरों पर शहीद हो रहा था तो किसान के पक्ष में एक ट्वीट नहीं किया उल्ट जो पक्ष में बोले उनके खिलाफ ट्वीट किये की यह किसान गलत है आज यह शराबी अजय की पिटाई का वीडियो वायरल हो रहा है दिल्ली से !😂

Alt News received several requests on its WhatsApp helpline number (+917600011160) and official mobile application to authenticate the claim.

Fact-check

According to media reports, the viral video is indeed from New Delhi’s Aerocity. However, it has nothing to do with Ajay Devgn.

Delhi police told Hindustan Times that the control room was informed about a “quarrel between two groups” at World Mark-1, Aerocity, around 2.30 am on March 26. The caller told police that the men involved in the incident were visibly drunk and abusing each other. As per the report, the two groups clashed after one of them accidentally hit the other’s car in the parking lot.

Deputy commissioner of police (IGIA) Rajeev Ranjan said, “A video of the incident showed that no Covid-19 safety norms were followed. After detailed verification, both Taranjeet Singh and Naveen Kumar were identified. They have been booked under Indian Penal Code sections 160 (for committing affray), 270 (for their act likely to spread infection of disease dangerous to life) and 188 (for disobeying public order). They have both been arrested.”

Ajay Devgn also took to Twitter to address the misinformation.

Thus, a video of a brawl at Delhi’s Aerocity was shared with the claim that Bollywood actor Ajay Devgn was thrashed by farmers’ protestors. Delhi police and the actor himself have refuted the claim.
