Be it off-screen appearance or on-screen presence, superstar Ranveer Singh has always wooed the fans and the audiences with his presence. Recently, he became the latest victim of the menace sweeping the industry- a fake AI-generated deepfake video featuring the actor surfaced online in which he is purportedly heard voicing his political views. While the video, from the actor's recent visit to Varanasi, appears genuine, the audio is of an AI-enabled voice clone of Ranveer.


He also recently addressed and warned the audience on social media by writing, "Deepfake se bacho dostonnnn."
