Alia Bhatt's Deepfake Encounter

As the Deepfake menace gains momentum, a manipulated video of Alia Bhatt circulating on social media has sparked fresh concerns. The video portrays a woman with Alia Bhatt's face engaging in inappropriate gestures, highlighting the deceptive capabilities of Deepfake technology.

For those unfamiliar, Deepfake techniques utilize Artificial Intelligence (AI) to generate fabricated images and videos, seamlessly blending individuals into content they never participated in. The realism of Deepfakes has raised significant apprehensions about the ethical implications and potential misuse of this advanced technology.

Growing Threats and Previous Incidents

In recent weeks, Bollywood has witnessed a surge in Deepfake incidents, targeting celebrities like Kajol, Katrina Kaif, and Rashmika Mandanna. Rashmika Mandanna, who faced a similar situation last month, expressed her distress, emphasizing the urgent need for community action against identity theft facilitated by these technologies. Amitabh Bachchan and Mrunal Thakur voiced their support for Rashmika amid the Deepfake predicament.

Alia Bhatt's Professional Endeavors

Away from the digital disruptions, Alia Bhatt's recent appearance was in Karan Johar's film "Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani," featuring an ensemble cast with names like Ranveer Singh, Shabana Azmi, Dharmendra, and Jaya Bachchan. The actress is gearing up for her next venture, the action-packed movie "Jigra," directed by Vasan Bala and co-produced by Alia Bhatt and Karan Johar.
