Rashmika Mandanna reacted to the viral deepfake video circulating on social media.

She said that this is "extremely scary" for everyone who is vulnerable to so many challenges given how technology is being misused.

She thanked her family, friends and well-wishers for protecting and supporting her.

Mandanna added that she cannot imagine what she would do if this happened to her when she was in school or college.

She urged everyone to address this issue as a community and with urgency.

Union Minister of State for Information Technology Rajeev Chandrasekhar said that social media platforms need to deal with such "damaging misinformation".

Citing IT rules notified in April 2023, the Union Minister said that social media platforms have a legal obligation to ensure that no misinformation is posted by any user.

Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan also expressed his concern and said that this is a "strong case for legal".
