After going through a fact check analysis by our team, we found out this video to be false and misleading. We can notice a disclaimer in the viral video at 1:07 minutes.
The disclaimer in the video reads “The video is for entertainment and promotional purposes only. It falls under fair use law. We do not wish to make any commercial use. All the contents are intended to showcase the creativity of the artist involved and strictly done for the promotional purpose (sic).”
We found this video in a Facebook page ‘Thakur Prank’. Thakur who posted this video also explains that it was all scripted and the girls were only acting in the video. He also mentioned that the girls were not consuming alcohol.
Therefore, we can clearly say that this video is false and misleading, it is not an actual video but a scripted act shot.
