Hoax or Fact:
A 33 seconds brief footage (shown in this article) in circulation online since April 2014 comes with various claims to show what appears to be a Flying Humanoid or Alien (UFO) spotted over Qutub Minar in Delhi, India. Let us analyze the authenticity of the video and the claims.
The video claiming to show a flying man spotted over Qutub Minar in Indian state of Delhi was originally uploaded to YouTube by a user named Riona Kapoor on 23rd April 2014 under People & Blogs category (same video shown in this article). The user has only this particular video uploaded and does not give any about information. Notably, the description of the video suggests viewers to read an exciting book about the mysterious flying man with links to buy it on Flipkart and Amazon.
Flaws & Facts
A skeptic view at the beginning of the video suggests unnatural acting of the man and the woman seen in the video, who, along with the videographer seem to have spotted the flying man accidentally. Then a close look at the flying man with respect to the surroundings reveal the slightly unusual low quality footage of the object in question.
The flying person seen in the video shot at Qutub Minar was not humanoid, extraterrestrial or someone flying with super powers. Like the description of the video hinted, the video is in fact an advertising campaign to promote a Superhero novel titled ‘Faceless’ written by author Nizam Ahmed. The cover of the book (shown in Image Gallery) clearly shows the same kind of flying man who appeared in the promotional video, and Riona is a character of the novel. The 'flying man' in the video that went viral online is most certainly added using computer-generated imagery (CGI).
