Alia Bhatt, the popular Bollywood actress, has become the latest victim of deepfake technology. A manipulated video of Bhatt has surfaced online, showing her making obscene gestures.
In the case of Bhatt’s deepfake video, the actress’s face has been superimposed onto another woman’s body. The video has been widely circulated on social media, and many people have expressed their shock and dismay at the content.
Bhatt’s deepfake video is not the first instance of this technology being used to target a celebrity. In recent months, other Indian actresses, including Rashmika Mandanna, Katrina Kaif, and Kajol, have also had their faces superimposed onto other women’s bodies in deepfake videos.

The video shows Alia Bhatt dancing to a song from the movie “Student of the Year”, but her face is replaced by another actress, Rashmika Mandanna. The video was created using a software called DeepFaceLab, which can swap faces in videos using artificial intelligence.
This is not the first time that deepfake videos have targeted Alia Bhatt. Earlier this year, another fake video showed her singing a song from the movie “Kalank”, but Katrina Kaif’s voice replaced her voice. The video was also created using DeepFaceLab and was widely circulated on social media.
What is deepfake video
Deepfakes are artificial intelligence (AI) that can be used to create realistic videos of people saying or doing things they have never said or done. This technology can potentially be used for malicious purposes, such as spreading misinformation or damaging someone’s reputation.
Rashmika Mandana Deepfake
After her deep fake was made viral, south star Rashmika openly expressed her disappointment and spoke out about the dirty incident.
Rashmika said, “Firstly, when I saw the deepfake video, I was very scared and worried seeing all of this happening. I thought I would not get any support from the team. The first person to support me was Amitabh Bachchan. Eventually, more people came forward to support.”
“It made me feel secure,” she said, speaking about putting her foot down and taking action. “I want to tell all the girls out there that this is not normal. You don’t have to keep quiet when something is affecting you. You can take support, you can react, and people will support you. It’s a good country that we live in,” Rashmika added.
Alia Bhatt is yet to comment on her video.
