Fact Check: Viral video of a girl singing ‘Piya Tose Naina Lage’ is from 2022
A video is getting viral on social media. In this video, a girl can be seen singing Lata Mangeshkar’s song ‘Piya Tose Naina Lage’ in a melodious voice. The girl is telling in this video that she was not selected. Social media users are claiming that even after having such a melodious voice, the girl has not been selected for Indian Idol.
By sharing this video a user named Satyam Sahu captioned- “ This girl has failed in Indian Idol. Because of this girl’s singing, some of the so-called singers of Bollywood can get discharged. This girl must get justice. Make it so viral that this girl gets justice.” ( English Translation )
Meanwhile, many other social media users are sharing a similar video.
To fact-check the viral video, the DFRAC team converted the video into a few frames, followed by a reverse search. We found several media reports regarding this video. According to the news published by Dainik Bhaskar in August 2022- Supriya, a resident of Samastipur in Bihar, went to audition for Indian Idol. Where the judges disqualified her, after which she cried as soon as she left the audition room.
India TV published a report in this regard on August 8, 2022. Apart from this, it has also been reported in other media reports that Supriya cried after being rejected in the audition.
DFRAC fact check makes it clear that the viral video is not from the recent but from August 2022. Therefore, the claim of social media users is misleading.
