Fact Check

In this viral video, it is shown that earlier Shubh had 4.0 million followers. After it came out that Shubh allegedly supports Khalistan which is why his tour was canceled, he apparently lost 2.9 million followers. Another screenshot shows that currently he has a following of 1.1 million followers. 

Now coming to the fact check, the screenshot attached is fake. Shubh’s followers never reached 4 million. As per InsTrack, a platform that tracks Instagram analytics accurately, his followers have increased and at present he enjoys a fan following of 1.6 million followers. 

So, as per this data shared, Shubh did not reach 4 million followers ever. Also his followers kept increasing and the screenshot which was attached in the video is a fake one.
