In recent news, the whole of Bollywood and India were shocked as an AI generated video surfaced on social media platforms. The generated video contained a female influencer from the country, who’s famous and is well known among the general public. The female had her face edited on another body in which she was wearing a low crop-top which infuriated all of India.
Rashmika Mandana AI generated video
Raashmika Mandana, a well known Indian Influencer with a following of almost 4.7 million on X commented regarding her video. Rashmika stated that she was extremely hurt by this video and this type of thing is not to be taken lightly. Rashmika further stated that everyone needs to address this and be united as a community so this doesn’t happen to other people as well.
Concerns in India upon fake Bollywood video
Many of the popular figures from Bollywood took to the internet to raise their concerns arguing that such things are career enders for people and regulations are to be made across the country for the use of this technology. AI has been crazy scary in the world and with a relatively new technology made available to the general public, there haven’t been any rock solid regulations placed on it yet.
However, earlier this year, a renowned female critic and journalist of the Prime Minister Modi was shamed and harassed after a fake video of her surfaced on the web in which her face was cropped and edited on top of a naked female body. This not only raised concerns but went on to show that these things are not to be taken lightly and defamation in this way can be very destructive.
