We found the same video uploaded on her page on January 04, 2017. The original video was 16:50 minutes. We can find the viral shot at 0:05 seconds.

"The video is from a live session that she had done on Facebook on January 04, 2017. In this live session, she had also shared her experiences related to musicians Madan Mohan and RD Burman while answering people's questions," OneIndia reported.

We lastly compared a screengrab from the viral video and the original video.
