Addressing the issue at an event, Rashmika conveyed, “Despite the normalization of Deepfakes, it’s not acceptable. I often wondered if my voice mattered in addressing this issue.”
She expressed gratitude for the support received from various film industry personalities, emphasizing the importance of speaking up against such incidents. Rashmika urged women to seek necessary assistance when faced with such technological abuses.

Disturbed by the incident, she shared her distress on Instagram, highlighting the gravity of such violations and the vulnerability individuals face due to technology’s misuse. She stressed the urgent need for community action to address identity theft through Deepfakes.
The growing Deepfake dilemma in Bollywood
Deepfake technology continues to target female Indian celebrities, with Alia Bhatt being the latest victim.
