Taking a hint from this, we checked the actor's social media handles. This led us to a video on her Instagram profile, where she could be seen wearing a similar outfit as the viral video.

  • The video was uploaded on 25 November 2022 by one 'Pankaj Bihari' and the actor was tagged in the post.

Finding the original video: Team WebQoof went through Pankaj's Instagram account and found the viral video uploaded on it.

  • It was uploaded on 26 November 2022 and the actor was one of the people who were tagged in the caption.

BJP's Shreyasi Singh had filed a complaint: According to a report published by Prabhat Khabar, Singh had filed an First Information Report (FIR) in Gidhaur police station after the video went viral with users misidentifying the person as the BJP leader.

  • The report mentioned that the video was actually of a Bhojpuri actor Yamini Singh, who was seen dancing to a song in her car.

  • It also carried a quote from the leader, where she said that she is always conscious of her responsibilities and work and has nothing to do with such things.

Conclusion: It is clear that the video shows an actor named Yamini Singh and not BJP leader Shreyasi Singh.
