Abhinav,

Thanks  for the comment. Your concern is duly noted, but as the video
editing has already been done by the production team, we cannot do any
changes now, even if we like to.

Whatsapp fake news is a real thing, and this video is not the first time,
where it has been mentioned. It has been featured in many news channels and
print media. Few examples are -
*

from Indian Express
* https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-india-45140158 from BBC
* http://time.com/5352516/india-whatsapp-fake-news/ from TIME

Even Whatsapp also admits that this is a problem and they have tried to
counter it in different ways. For eg. -
