What is the Actual Truth About this Incident? : Fact

Nevertheless, these statements are prefabricated, they are false and without validity. The video that has been uploaded is a screenshot; in the interview, the groom mentions that he made the video to raise awareness about the high number of women who leave their husbands. He added that he is content with his marriage and made the video with his wife’s approval. He also expressed regret to those who believed the video to be authentic. It has nothing to do with actuality. So, the claim that a man marrying a female goat or nanny goat from Bihar is authentic, is not true at all. The video was uploaded in Youtube on April 17, 2024.
