Earlier this month, a particular video went viral. In the video, someone who looks exactly like Rashmika Mandanna was seen getting into an elevator. The woman in the video was seen wearing a revealing outfit. It was revealed to be an AI-enabled 'deepfake' video.
After a couple of Union Ministers intervened, a cyber complaint was lodged against the unknown creator of the video for causing deep distress to the 'Pushpa 2' actress.
As per NDTV, a 19-year-old youth from Bihar has been rounded up for questioning by the Delhi police. On the basis of data provided to law enforcement agencies by Facebook, it has been discovered that it was this teen who was the first one to upload the deepfake video on social media. If he is found guilty of creating it, he will face a jail term of three years.
