FACT CHECK

NewsMobile fact-checked the above post and found it to be misleading.
With the help of InVID tool, we got keyframes of the video. On putting the keyframes of the video through Google Reverse Image Search, we found the same video on New Video Clip in the Persian language claiming that it’s an ‘imaginary’ clip. 

Moreover, when we saw the video carefully, we also noticed a watermark in the viral video. 

We found the same watermark was found on a Chinese website claiming that the video is of ‘Long Yichen’.

On comparing the post on social media and video on a Chinese site, we can see that the watermark is the same.

Taking the clue, we found the original channel of ‘Long Yichen’ on Ixigua’, another Chinese website and found the same videos. 

However, on the website, we found plenty of videos with caption ‘Visual effects’, which clearly states that the video is edited and also has visual effects elements.

Earlier, NewsMobile did a fact-check with similar claims. The fact check was of the video of water and light show from China which was falsely claimed to be from Rajasthan. Link to the fact-check was found here.

In conclusion, we can say that the video of the light show is not from Rajasthan. Truth is that it is partially animated with visual effects from China. Don’t fall for false and misleading claims.
