Here's how people reacted to the clip:

An individual wrote, "AI is very dangerous."

Another person said, "I thought it's Alia, then I watched carefully, and she is not Alia."

A third commented, "AI dude. Looked like a doppelganger for a minute."

"What the hell? Musk was right. AI is winning everything for real," shared someone else.

An Instagram user also added, “Is this legal?”

Many others took to the comments and wrote how "dangerous" AI can be.

Earlier, another video of Alia Bhatt's deepfake went viral from the same account. That time, the actresse's face was added to Wamiqa Gabbi's video.

Last year, Delhi Police reportedly tracked down four suspects who uploaded Rashmika Mandanna's deepfake video online.

In the video, a woman identified as Zara Patel was seen entering an elevator while sporting a black fitness onesie. AI was used to alter her face so that it resembled Mandanna's. Soon after it was posted, authorities started looking into the matter by figuring out all the IP addresses from which the clip had been posted. The Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) sent a notification to the city police, and on November 11, the Intelligence Fusion and Strategic Operations (IFSO) of Delhi Police registered a First Information Report (FIR) against unidentified individuals in connection with the crime.
