A video showing a man dancing to bollywood song 'tip tip barsa paani' has been shared by several social media handles as well as media outlets claiming that the man is a member of Pakistan National Assembly Aamir Liaquat Husain. Husain is a member of Pakistan's incumbent Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf party.
BOOM found that the person shown dancing in the viral video is a professional Pakistani dancer and choreographer, and not Husain.
The 59-second-long video shows a man dancing to a Hindi film song at what looks like a wedding ceremony.
Several mainstream media outlets including wire agency Asia News International, News 18 Hindi, ABP Live, Livehindustan, Dainik Jagran, Koimoi among others reported the video as that of a Pakistani MP dancing to the tunes of 'tip tip barsa paani'.
Zee Punjab Haryana Himachal shared the same video from its verified Facebook page with a Hindi caption translating to 'Pakistani MP did a wonderful dance on bollywood song, watch video'.
