Video of the launch of Chandrayaan-2

After reverse image research of keyframes in google, we found a video on youtube in which Prime Minister Narendra Modi can be seen watching the live broadcast of the launch of Chandrayaan-2 on 22 July 2019. 

If we watch the video frame by frame, we can clearly observe that everything is the same except the visuals on the TV which have been edited in the video viral on social media.

News Agency ANI also tweeted a post with a caption  "Prime Minister Narendra Modi watched the live telecast of Chandrayaan-2 launch by ISRO".

According to a report on July 22, US President Donald Trump met Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan and hailed Pakistan's help in advancing peace talks in Afghanistan, a marked shift in tone as the United States seeks an accord with the Taliban to end almost 18 years of war. Chandrayaan-2 was also launched on the same day.

Conclusion: the viral video showing PM Narendra Modi watching the live broadcast of Trump and Imran Khan meeting on a big screen is edited. The video has been made by superimposing the video of the meeting of Imran Khan and Trump on the TV Screen. PM Modi was actually watching the launch of Chandrayaan-2.
