Gautam Gambhir, a former cricketer who is now a politician, posted the video on X as he worried about the captain of the World Cup-winning team. 

When posting the video, Gautam Gambhir asked if anyone else had seen it. He wrote with an emoji of crossed fingers, “I sincerely hope it’s not @therealkapildev and that Kapil Paaji is okay.” 

The Viral Kapil Dev Video- Real Or Fake?

A man wearing a bright blue t-shirt and checkered pants is seen being taken away by two thugs in the 0.07-second clip. The man, who resembles Kapil Dev, has a piece of fabric wrapped around his mouth and his wrists tied behind him. For a split second, the man turns around, showing his face. He gives the two men a hopeless expression as they drag him inside a run-down residence.


The popular video hasn’t received an official response, but many of its social media followers have asserted that it is nothing more than a promotional gimmick.

Social media users were quick to reply that no one falls for such acts now; meanwhile, some simply laughed it out.

As soon as the video went viral, internet users flooded Gautam Gambhir’s page in the hopes that it was a publicity stunt like what happened with cricket pundit Harsha Bhogle the previous year.


A similar video of cricket pundit Harsha Bhogle abruptly disappearing while speaking to a sports portal through a video link surfaced in March 2022, which worried Netizens. 

On March 24, 2022, Harsha Bhogle was speaking to cricketsportwalkin during an Instagram live session when all of a sudden the camera looked to have fallen to the ground and a fuzzy image surfaced. However, as people began genuinely caring about him, it was ultimately discovered that it was just a publicity hoax gone bad.
