We also found this video on several YouTube channels too with the same claim.


The video is from Greece, not India

With the help of keyframes from this viral video, we ran a reverse image search on google. During the course of our investigation, we found out that this video was embedded in a news article by daily mail UK.

The article states that this video footage consists of a historic moment when the largest cruise ship passed through the Corinth canal in Greece.The timestamp in this article clearly mentions that this story was published on 11th October 2019.

Therefore the claims made on this viral video were found to be false as this video is not from Gujarat and instead this video belongs to Greece.

Roro Service in Gujarat was started 3 years ago
