Claim: Video showing the last moments of the late veteran singer Lata Mangeshkar.
Fact: The video shared in the post shows Lata Mangeshkar’s old Facebook live interaction with her fans on 04 January 2017. The video shared in the post does not show the last moments of the late Lata Mangeshkar. Hence, the claim made in the post is FALSE.
On reverse image search of the screenshots in the video, a video with similar visuals was found published on the Lata Mangeshkar official Facebook page.
