Rashmika Mandanna reacts to her deepfake video; Union Minister Rajeev Chandrasekhar calls it ‘dangerous and damaging’
Earlier in the day, Rashmika expressed her concern over the viral video and said that she was really hurt to see the video which shows a woman dressed in black workout onesie inside an elevator.
“I feel really hurt to share this and have to talk about the deep fake 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. 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,” Rashmika posted on Instagram.
On the work front, Rashmika will be seen in Animal opposite Ranbir Kapoor and in the Pan-India film Pushpa 2. She also has Chaava in her kitty.
