A deepfake video of Rashmika Mandanna has been going viral on social media. The video clip showed her face pasted on another woman’s body using artificial intelligence (AI). A similar thing happened with Katrina Kaif after a deepfake picture of her from Tiger 3 started doing the rounds.
Now, in a recent interview with India Today, Sonnalli Seygallreacted to Rashmika’s video and said that immediate action needs to be taken against this.According to her, as a girl, as a human being, she doesn’t feel safe because that means anything can be done with whatever is available online. She added that so much of our lives is out there right on the internet, whether it’s social media, Google, or our phones.

Sonnalli also recalled going through a similar experience. The actress revealed that it happened to her in the past but not in a video, in the form of pictures. She revealed that it was her mother who brought it to her notice. According to her, it was really scary and really affected her mother as she did not understand it.

Elaborating further, Sonnalli said that it makes her angry. She added that it is completely illegal and just because they’re faceless people doing this does not make it okay by any standards.

After Rashmika took to her social media handles to raise voice against such fake pictures and videos being circulated on the internet, many celebs such as Naga Chaitanya and Mrunal Thakur also expressed concern over the misuse of AI.

Even Rashmika’s ‘Goodbye’ co-star Amitabh Bachchan called for action after the video went viral. The person in the video is a British woman named Zara Patel, who has a huge social media following.
