Rashmika Mandanna Falls Prey To Deepfake Video Again Six Months After She Called It 'Wrong'

Several other celebrities, including Alia Bhatt, Ranveer Singh, Katrina Kaif, Nora Fatehi, Aamir Khan, and Kajol, have also fallen prey to the misuse of this technology in the past. Read on to know the details

Actress Rashmika Mandanna has yet again become a soft target of deepfake technology. A video has surfaced on the Internet where the Pushpa star’s face has been morphed into a model’s body. The latest incident comes six months after another AI-generated video of the actress went viral.

In April 2024, Colombian model and content creator Daniela Villareal shared a video on Instagram, where she posed near a waterfall in a strapless bikini, striking various poses and smiling for the camera. However, a few days ago, Rashmika’s face was superimposed onto the model’s in the video, which quickly went viral.

Rashmika has, so far, not reacted to the viral deepfake video. Also this isn’t the first time she has fallen victim to the deepfake menace. In November 2023, a morphed video of the actress went viral, showing her in black shorts and a top with a plunging neckline.

While some social media users believed the woman was Rashmika, others pointed out that it was an AI-generated edited video, and the woman in the clip was not the actress.

In January 2024, the Delhi Police arrested the main suspect who created the video. Reacting to this development, Rashmika expressed her gratitude to the police on social media.

Several other celebrities, including Alia Bhatt, Ranveer Singh, Katrina Kaif, Nora Fatehi, Aamir Khan, and Kajol, have also fallen prey to the misuse of this technology in the past.

Meanwhile, on the work front, Rashmika will star opposite Salman Khan in the upcoming movie “Sikandar.” Set to be released in theaters on Eid 2025, the project will be produced by Sajid Nadiadwala’s banner, Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment. She is also gearing up for the release of Pushpa: The Rule starring Allu Arjun in the lead.
