Popular content creator and actor Bhuvan Bam has filed a complaint regarding his deepfake video that went viral on social media recently. In the video, Bhuvan was seen urging people to invest in tennis through the predictions of a certain bookie. However, the content creator took immediate action and filed a formal complaint at the Oshiwara Police Station in Mumbai. The police are currently investigating the matter. Speaking on the issue, Bhuvan Bam urged his fans to be cautious and said, 'I would like to alert all my fans and followers about a deepfake video of mine that is going viral on social media. This video is completely fake and misleading, which encourages people to invest in tennis by a certain bookie. My team has already filed a complaint at the Oshiwara Police Station and they are investigating the matter.'

Bhuvan Bam's appeal to the people

He said, 'I humbly request everyone not to fall prey to this video. Please stay safe and avoid making any investments that may lead to trouble or financial loss. It is very important to be cautious and not fall prey to these fraudsters.' Bhuvan Bam is not the first Indian celebrity to fall prey to deepfakes. Several actors including Radhika Mandanna, Alia Bhatt and Katrina Kaif have also expressed concern after their deepfake videos went viral.

Ranveer and Aamir Khan have also become victims of deepfake

Earlier this year, a video of Ranveer Singh also surfaced online in which the Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani actor was seen criticising the government. In the clip, Singh was seen urging people to vote for 'justice' in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections. However, it was later clarified that the viral video was edited. Before Ranveer, another deepfake video of Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan also surfaced in which the actor was seen promoting a political party. The video caught everyone's attention and the Mumbai police swung into action and filed an FIR against an unknown person.
