Bollywood is currently grappling with a rising issue known as the deepfake menace. Recently, popular actresses like Rashmika Mandanna, Katrina Kaif, and Kajol fell victim to this disturbing trend.

Now, joining this list is Alia Bhatt, who has become the latest target of a deepfake video.

A video featuring a morphed face of Alia Bhatt has quickly spread across various social media platforms, causing widespread concern about the misuse of AI technology.

In this manipulated video, Alia's face is edited onto another woman, who is seen sitting on a bed.

The woman is dressed in a blue floral co-ord set, and the video portrays explicit and sexually suggestive content, with the woman making provocative gestures to the camera.

It is alarming to note that the video creates a false and inappropriate portrayal of Alia Bhatt through the morphed face.

The emergence of deepfake technology has raised serious apprehensions and concerns about its misuse.

Many individuals are worried about the dual nature of this technology, recognising its potential benefits but also acknowledging the risks and dangers it poses to society.

The recent viral video featuring Alia Bhatt showcases how deepfake technology can be misused to create sexually explicit content, causing distress among people who fear the consequences of such manipulation in the online space.
