After listening to the video, we were skeptical as no airline had done such a thing before; if it had happened, it would have made headlines. We began our investigation and found surprising results. We located the original post by a girl on Instagram who first shared the video. Her post clearly stated, "This content is dubbed voice-over. No flight has made such an announcement. It has nothing to do with @akasaair management." This made it clear that the announcement was not made by Akasa Airline.

We also found an official statement from Akasa, which responded to the rumour and the user deleted the video afterward. Akasa clarified, "Hi Rakesh, we want to make it clear that our in-flight announcements are made in Hindi and English. The announcement in the video is not official and seems to be a dubbed video that has been shared." Hence, it is clear that Akasa did not make any such announcement; it was dubbed content.


The claim circulating on social media that Akasa Airline made an announcement in Sanskrit has been found to be entirely false (FAKE) in INDIA TV's fact check.
