Fact Check:

The claim is misleading.

When NewsMeter looked closely, we could see a description appears at the bottom of the video. "This page publishes scripted or parody drama videos. They are just designed to motivate people," the description said.

A reverse image search of the screenshots of the video revealed that Tollywood actress Hansa Nandini shared a video with similar scenes on her Facebook page on February 3, 2020. Hansa Nandini made it clear in her Facebook post that this video is scripted. Based on these details it is safe to say that what was shared in the post was a scripted video, not a real-life incident.



NewsMeter has published several fact-check articles about the scripted videos.

Hence, the claim is false.

The video of a Hindu saint helping a Muslim woman struggling to carry a gas cylinder is scripted, not a real-life incident.
