Imagine a world where the voices you hear and the faces you see are not what they seem. Welcome to the age of deepfake technology, where reality blurs with deception.

The Deepfake Onslaught
Bollywood Under Attack
In a disturbing incident, a morphed video of Rashmika Mandanna went viral, showcasing the advanced capabilities of deepfake technology. The video was manipulated to such an extent that distinguishing it from genuine footage became challenging. Rashmika, deeply affected by the incident, took to her Instagram story to express her distress, highlighting the severe implications of such technology on personal and societal trust.
Adding to the list of victims, Kajol faced the repercussions of deepfake manipulation. The incident involved a British-Indian influencer Rosie Breen's GRWM TikTok video turning into a nightmare, as Kajol's face was seamlessly morphed into the footage. This raises questions about privacy, consent, and the potential misuse of synthetic media. The disturbing trend raises questions about the ease with which deepfake tools can be accessed and misused.
- In Katrina Kaif's case, a digitally altered image of the actress from her recently released film 'Tiger 3' showed the actress engaging in a fight with a stuntwoman clad in a towel, the edited version showed her wearing a low-cut white top and a matching bottom instead of the towel.
