By Akanksha - February 20, 2024 09:03 PM

The former captain of India, Virat Kohli, has become the latest victim of a 'deepfake' when a video went viral purporting to show him endorsing a betting app. Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar recently voiced his worries in response to a phoney film purporting to be advertising a gaming app and featuring the cricket icon. Following the event, the Facebook page marketing the game app and a gaming website were the targets of a complaint filed by the Mumbai police.

A digitally altered film of Kohli was circulated on social media by AI-generated content a few days after Tendulkar retaliated against the deepfake video. The deepfake video purports to show Kohli endorsing the betting software. To provide the appearance that the star cricket player is supporting the online game's winning rate, a deepfake video was released.

Legendary batsman Tendulkar reported a deepfake video on X, the old name for Twitter, on Thursday. 'These videos are fake. It is disturbing to see rampant misuse of technology. Request everyone to report videos, ads & apps like these in large numbers. Social Media platforms need to be alert and responsive to complaints. Swift action from their end is crucial to stopping the spread of misinformation and deepfakes,' Tendulkar said.

Virat Kohli missed the England series

About batting legend Virat Kohli, he is not available for selection in the current five-match Test series between England and India. Kohli has decided to skip the first two matches in the run-up to the first Test match against England in Hyderabad due to "personal reasons". When the 35-year-old was left off of India's selection for the Test matches against England in Rajkot and Ranchi, his absence was prolonged. India lost the first Test at Hyderabad by a score of 28 runs. But in the England series, the team without Kohli recovered, thrashing the visitors in the following two matches. At Visakhapatnam, Rohit Sharma and company crushed England by 106 runs. India gave England's Bazballers its worst loss since 1931 in Rajkot on Sunday, taking a 2-0 lead over the visiting team.
