Delhi Metro viral video: The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has raised doubts regarding the authenticity of a viral video featuring two girls applying Holi colour to each other inside a coach while a Hindi film song plays in the background. The DMRC is analysing the video for the alleged violation of its policies.

Women engaged in an indecent act of applying colours on each other on a moving train has gone viral on social media with many expressing their disapproval of such behavior within the confines of public transportation. 

Here's what DMRC said on viral video 

In a statement about the video, the DMRC on Saturday said, "Prima facie, the authenticity of the shooting of this video inside the metro also seems doubtful as deepfake technology may have been used to create this content." 

The DMRC has condemned the video and urged passengers not to create such content that may inconvenience other commuters. "Through innumerable campaigns and commuter awareness drives, we have tried to raise awareness among passengers requesting them not to make reels or indulge in any activity which causes inconvenience to fellow commuters. We also request fellow passengers to inform us immediately the moment they see such shoots being conducted," the DMRC said.

It said that the DMRC is absolutely not in favour of such reels being made on its premises.

With their faces already covered in colour powder, they appear to be an intimate celebration of Holi inside the metro coach, while a Bollywood song "Ang Laga De" plays in the background.

Further in the video, they are rubbing their faces and engaging in other provocation actions, such as attempting to kiss and pretending to sleep on each other. Additionally, the clip shows other passengers in the background appearing visibly uncomfortable as the entire act unfolds.
