Amid the ongoing deepfake controversies in showbiz, Bollywood’s Gangubai Alia Bhatt finds herself entangled in another unsettling incident. Following the footsteps of fellow celebrities like Rashmika Mandanna, Katrina Kaif, Kajol, and Aamir Khan, Bhatt is now the latest target of deepfake video manipulation.

The controversy erupted when an Instagram user, known as Unfixface, shared a video where Alia Bhatt’s face was digitally inserted into footage originally featuring actress Wamiqa Gabbi.

The altered video depicted the figure adorned in a vibrant red saree with a matching blouse, accompanied by the caption “Aliabhatt off screen.” This sparked concerns among viewers, with some questioning the legality of using Bhatt’s likeness in such a manner.

Comments noted that the original video showcased Wamiqa Gabbi and was digitally altered using AI technology to replace her face with Alia Bhatt’s.

Original Clip Featured Wamiqa Gabbi

The original video featuring Wamiqa Gabbi was shared by the actress herself on her Instagram account a few days earlier. In her post, Gabbi referred to herself as “Your Premiqa,” while the soundtrack featured Amar Singh Chamila’s song “Pehle Lalkare Naal Main Dar Gai.”

Wamiqa Gabbi, known for her roles in films such as VD18, Kali Jotta, and 83, is set to star alongside Varun Dhawan in an upcoming project titled Baby John. Directed by Tamil filmmaker Kalees and also featuring Keerthy Suresh, the film’s original release date of May 31 has been postponed, with the production team aiming to reschedule the premiere for June or July of 2024.
