New Delhi: Rashmika Mandanna is one of the first Indian actresses who became the victim of AI deepfake video, that went viral recently. As per news agency ANI, the Delhi Police has tracked down four suspects in the case, who seem to be uploaders and not the creators of the video. The search for the main suspect is underway.

The ANI tweet reads as, ‘Delhi Police say it has tracked down four suspects, who turned out to be uploaders, not the creators, involved in the case of deep fake profiles of actor Rashmika Mandana. Police are looking are the key conspirator in the case.’


Rashmika Mandanna referred to deepfakes as ‘scary’ during the promotions of her recently released blockbuster drama ‘Animal’ in Hyderabad. She also expressed her gratitude to all of the people who voiced their support for her after the video clip went viral.

As soon as Rashmika’s deepfake video went viral, the industry came out in support of the actress. Amitabh Bachchan, who essayed the role of Rashmika’s father in ‘Goodbye’, was the first person to come out in support. Later, Mrunal Thakur, Naga Chaitanya and Chinmayi Sripada also took a stand for the ‘Pushpa’ actress.

Reacting to the viral deepfake video, Rashmika had issued a post which read as, ‘I feel really hurt to share this and have to talk about the deepfake video of me being spread online. Something like this is honestly, extremely scary not only for me, but also for each one of us who today is vulnerable to so much harm because of how technology is being misused.’

She added, ‘Today, as a woman and as an actor, I am thankful for my family, friends and well wishers who are my protection and support system. But if this happened to me when I was in school or college, I genuinely can’t imagine how could I ever tackle this. We need to address this as a community and with urgency before more of us are affected by such identity theft.’

After Rashmika Mandanna, other Bollywood actors including Katrina Kaif, Kajol and Alia Bhatt also became victims of AI deepfake videos.
