Sara Tendulkar, the famous cricketer Sachin Tendulkar’s daughter, is dealing with a worrying digital problem.
She recently had to deal with an uncomfortable circumstance with a phony account on X (previously Twitter) that was impersonating her, sharing deepfake pictures, and allegedly communicating with her reported lover, Shubman Gill.
Her online adventure took an unexpected turn when @SaraTendulkar__, a fake account, gained a sizable following of more than two hundred thousand users. This fake account conversed with people close to Sara and shared photos of her that had been altered.
Sara posted an official statement on her Instagram account, which she later deleted, expressing concern about the misuse of technology and highlighting how crucial it is to keep truth and authenticity intact. She emphasized the unsettling frequency of deepfake photos and explained why she wasn’t present at X.
Sara acknowledged spoof accounts but asked X to investigate and remove them. She stressed the need to establish reality and trust in digital encounters, saying that “entertainment should never compromise truth.”
Even if Sara’s comment was taken down, her message still rings true: social media companies must respond quickly to stop users from using technology for espionage and impersonation.
During these technological challenges, Sara Tendulkar gave voice to cricket enthusiasts by sharing her sincere feelings for Team India after their loss to Australia in the World Cup final. The heartfelt words from Sara and Indian opener Shubman Gill reflected the disillusionment of the whole fan base.

Celebrities like Anushka Sharma joined Sara at the star-studded event to support the Men in Blue.
