Prime Minister Narendra Modi on August 5, 2020, inaugurated the construction of the much-awaited Ram temple in a grand Bhoomi pooja ceremony in Ayodhya.
Meanwhile, a post has started making rounds on social media with a claim that Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan will be donating Rs 5 crore to Ram Mandir trust.
The posts claim that the announcement was reported by Dainik Bhaskar and E-24 Bollywood News.
NewsMobile fact-checked the post and found the claim to be false.
Since the post mentioned Dainik Bhaskar and E-24 Bollywood News as its source, we decided to check their website and social media platforms for the original report.
However, we did not find any such report on the website of Dainik Bhaskar. We also ran an advanced Twitter search but did not find any tweet to support the claim.
Moreover, we found that the Twitter handle mentioned in the post (@Bollywood24) is not the official handle of E-24 Bollywood News.
We found that the twitter handle of E-24 Bollywood News is @E24bollynews and they did not tweet anything like this.
Moreover, the last tweet made by the handle @Bollywood24 was on July 9, 2013.
We also searched the social media account of Red Chillies Entertainment and Shah Rukh Khan but did not find any such announcements. Nor, did we we find any credible news reports to support the claim.
Hence, based on the above information, it is clear that the post in question is fake.
