Shahrukh Khan’s Dunki and Prabhas’s Salaar: Part 1 go head-to-head at the box office. Rajkumar Hirani’s comedy-drama Dunki was released on 21, December 2023 and Prasanth Neel’s action drama Salaar was released on 22, December 2023. Dunki’s first-day box office collection was 30 crores, whereas Salaar’s advance booking collection crossed 48 crores.

Meanwhile, a post purporting to share a screenshot of an X post by film critic Taran Adarsh where he posted about the Dunki movie and said the movie was an epic disappointment, went viral. Some claimed that Taran Adarsh posted it and deleted it. Similar claims shared by social media users can be seen here, here, here, here, here and here

What is the truth?

We searched the film critic Taran Adarsh’s official X handle, but we were not able to find any such claims on social media. However, he posted an update saying that he eagerly wants to watch the movie Dunki and Salaar but because he is hospitalised and is in observation after surgery he is not able to watch.

Using the online site Social Blade which tracks the tweet counts and deletes posts of important personalities, we did not find any posts deleted.

When we advanced our search, we found that he posted similar words for the Adipurush movie review on 16, June 2023. So this post of his was edited and is shared as Dunki review.

The comparison of original and fake tweets is shown below.
