Kajol, too, fell victim to this unsettling trend when a digitally altered video surfaced, showing a lady changing clothing with Kajol's visage seamlessly merged onto her physique.
Katrina Kaif faced a different form of deepfake manipulation. A photo from her movie 'Tiger 3' was digitally altered to depict her engaging in a fight scene with a stuntwoman, wearing nothing but a towel. The edited image circulated widely, creating a false narrative that could tarnish the actress's reputation.
The rise of deepfake technology poses a significant threat to civil society, as it is increasingly exploited to spread false information and produce explicit content.
