Zara Patel, the British-Indian woman whose video was manipulated to create a viral deepfake featuring actor Rashmika Mandanna, has expressed her deep distress over the incident. In an Instagram story, Zara Patel candidly wrote, "It has come to my attention that someone created a deepfake video using my body and a popular Bollywood actress's face. I had no involvement with the deepfake video, and I'm deeply disturbed and upset by what is happening."

In the subsequent lines of her message, Zara urged people to be vigilant and employ fact-checking before accepting everything they encounter on the Internet, emphasizing that not everything found online can be deemed as genuine.

Additionally, Telangana Chief Minister KCR's daughter, Kaviotha, strongly advocated for stringent cybercrime laws to protect women.Even Union IT Minister Rajiv Chandrasekhar reacted seriously and promised to take strong action.
