Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra has fallen prey to deepfake technology, like other celebrities such as Rashmika Mandanna, Alia Bhatt, and Katrina Kaif.
An online video showed Priyanka seemingly promoting a brand and discussing her yearly earnings.
Although the video looked real initially, a closer look showed that Priyanka’s voice and words were tampered with.
This event underlines the increasing worries about deepfakes and their ability to spread false information.
Unlike earlier instances where celebrities’ faces were swapped onto controversial content, Chopra’s deepfake was more complex.
The creators replaced her actual voice and words with fake ones, making it hard for viewers to judge the video’s truthfulness. Deepfakes, or counterfeit videos created by artificial intelligence, are causing worry due to their potential misuse.
They can harm people’s reputations, spread false information, and sway public opinion.
They also make it hard to tell real from fake online. The Indian government is working to combat this problem.
Union Minister Rajeev Chandrasekhar recently met with social media companies to discuss their efforts in fighting fake news and deepfakes.
This shows the government’s dedication to protecting people from these harmful videos.
Actress Priyanka Chopra has not spoken about the deepfake video.
But her silence highlights the damage these videos can do, reminding us that even famous people can be affected by deepfakes.
