A video clip from the 1982 film ‘Gandhi’ directed by Richard Attenborough, is being shared on social media with a claim that it depicts conversation between Mahatma Gandhi and Veer Savarkar.
Facebook users are sharing the video with the caption: प्रस्तुत है 1982 में बनी “गांधी” फिल्म का एक दृश्य वीर सावरकर-गांधी संवाद ! सावरकर जी के विचारों की दृढ़ता और गांधी की संशय भरी वाणी
-कृपया ज़रूर सुने ध्यान रहे यह फिल्म RSS वालों ने नहीं बल्कि मशहूर ब्रिटिश फ़िल्म निर्माता रिचर्ड एटनबरो ने बनाई थी !
(English Translation: Presenting a scene from the movie “Gandhi” made in 1982 Veer Savarkar-Gandhi Dialogue! The perseverance of Savarkar ji’s thoughts and the suspicious speech of Gandhi – Please must listen Keep in mind that this film was not made by RSS but by famous British filmmaker Richard Attenborough!)
Here’s the link to the above video.
NewsMobile fact-checked the post and found the claim to be false.
We ran a search and found the full Gandhi movie on YouTube. However, we did not find this scene anywhere in the film.
We then ran another keyword search and found that the same clip was uploaded on YouTube on April 4, 2011, with the title: Savarkar meets Gandhi at Ratnagiri.
The video description read: Vinayak Damodar Savarkar meets Mahatma Gandhi at Ratnagiri. Clip from the movie Veer Savarkar.
We also found Veer Savarkar movie on YouTube where this clip can be found at 2:30:07 time code.
Veer Savarkar is a 2001 film that was written and directed by Ved Rahi.
From the above fact check, it is clear that the clip is not the 1982 film Gandhi which was directed by Richard Attenborough. Hence, the claim is false.
