Video of a few school kids romancing on the street is being circulated on social media, claiming that it is the real incident from Delhi.

Social media users are sharing the video with a caption: “दिल्ली की गलियों में स्कूल के बच्चे रासलीला करते हुए। Arvind Kejriwal तुमने दिल्ली के स्कूलों का ये हाल बना दिया।” (English translation: Schoolchildren performing Rasleela on the streets of Delhi.

Through the Reverse Image Search on keyframes of the video, we found it on the Facebook page of a user Ankit Jatuskran. The original video 5 min 40 sec long was uploaded on July 25, 2022. 

In the original video, a disclaimer was found, stating that the viral video was a work of fiction.
