Delhi Police has registered an FIR in actress Rashmika Mandana’s deepfake video case. According to news agency ANI, a special cell police is investigating the incident.
On November 6, a video went viral on social media, in which Rashmika was seen in an elevator. That girl looks like Rashmika. However, she is not Rashmika. She is a girl named Zara Patel. His face was changed to that of Rashmika.
Regarding this, Rashmika expressed concern about the danger due to misuse of technology on social media. She wrote, “Such things are dangerous not only for me, but also for those who are insecure due to misuse of technology.” Today, as a woman and an actor, I am grateful to my family, friends and well-wishers for supporting me. But if it had happened to me when I was in school or college, I can’t really say how I would have coped with it. We as a community need to address this quickly before more people are affected.’
Zara Patel, the real girl in the video, also responded on November 7. Zara said that she has no involvement in this deepfake video controversy. She is very disturbed by this incident. Zara said, “If this continues, girls and women will stop sharing their photos and videos on social media in the future.”
