NewsMobile fact-checked the viral video, and found that it has been taken from a movie.

Searching with keywords ‘swami Vivekanand speech’ on YouTube, we found a video titled: स्वामी विवेकानंद की आत्मकथा | Full Movie | हिंदी | उन्ही के शब्दों में | Vivekananda Ki Atmakatha.

The same video had been uploaded by ‘Sri Ramakrishna Math Chennai titled ‘Vivekananda By Vivekananda | Full Movie | Life History | English | official’.

The viral clip can be seen at counter 13:34 of the video.

According to the website Advaita Ashrama, the film is based on the autobiographical writings of Swami Vivekananda and attempts to recreate his life through his own words.

So, this proves that the clip is, indeed, a scene from a movie, and not an original clip of Vivekananda’s speech.
