Soon after the death of Captain Deepak Vasant Sathe in the Kozhikode Airport plane crash a video gone viral with a note saying “Beautiful song by Capt.

The viral video claims that this song ‘Ghar Se Nikalte Hi’ from the Hindi film ‘Papa Kahte Hain’ was sung by Captain Deepak Vasant Sathe in a live show. Vishvas News in its investigation used the InVID knowledge verification platform to segregate the video in images. Then we used the Google Reverse Image search to find out the original video. This effort took us to Vice Admiral Girish Luthra of Indian Navy singing this song at Golden Jubilee celebrations. The YouTube link is here.
The Citizen 4 Forces, an NGO run by a group of extremely patriotic Indians, working towards the rights of soldiers, educating civilians about military history and operations. also have put in this video in which it is mentioned that “Vice Admiral Girish Luthra (Retd), Former CIC Western Command. Singing ‘Ghar Se Nikalte Hi’ at the Golden Jubilee celebrations of Western Naval Command of Indian Navy. Waooo it is. Astounding Admiral Sir”.
We also found a news item appeared on Navbharat Times dated March 15, 2019 which reported on the retired navy chief Girish Luthra singing ‘Ghar Se Nikalte Hi Kuch Door Chalte Hi’ for his troops on the Golden Jubilee celebrations.
Indian Navy spokesperson Commander Vivek Madhwal said the information regarding the video is incorrect. The officer in the video is from the Indian Navy, Vice Admiral Girish Luthra (Retd), while Capt Sathe retired from the Indian Air Force. Moreover, the naval officer in the video is retired at the rank of vice admiral, whereas Sathe retired as a Wing Commander.
Conclusion: The viral video of the song ‘Ghar Se Nikalte Hi’ from the Hindi film ‘Papa Kahte Hain’ was sung by the retired navy chief Girish Luthra and not by Captain Deepak Vasant Sathe.
