Kajol Falls Prey to Deepfake Trend After Recent Cases Involving Rashmika Mandanna and Katrina Kaif
In the age of advanced technology, the entertainment world faces a new threat - deepfake videos. Following the incidents involving Rashmika Mandanna and Katrina Kaif, the latest celebrity to be targeted is Kajol. The internet has been buzzing with a disturbing trend over the past month, as deepfake videos blur the boundaries between reality and fiction. Now, a deepfake video featuring Kajol has gone viral across various social media platforms.
Adding to the deepfake controversies, a manipulated video of Kajol has surfaced online. The original clip was shared by influencer Rosie Breen on TikTok as part of the popular 'Get Ready With Me' trend.
The recent video adds to the growing concerns around deepfake technology, especially after a similar incident involving Rashmika Mandanna. A few days ago, a deepfake video of the popular actor circulated on social media, fooling many into believing that it was actually Kajol herself changing outfits. However, the truth unfolded – the video was manipulated using artificial intelligence (AI) tools, capable of altering a person's face in videos and pictures, ultimately leading to the creation of fake content.
The original video, posted by influencer Rosie Breen on June 5, 2023, was part of the 'Get Ready With Me' (GRWM) trend. In the manipulated version that is now going viral, Breen's face has been replaced with that of Kajol. The video suggests that the actress is changing outfits and showcasing her body on camera, creating a false narrative.
The rise of deepfake technology has ignited serious concerns about its potential misuse, with incidents involving prominent celebrities like Rashmika Mandanna and Katrina Kaif going viral. As technology continues to advance, the need for awareness and vigilance against the manipulation of digital content becomes increasingly crucial. The entertainment industry must grapple with the challenges posed by deepfakes to safeguard the reputation and privacy of its stars.
