Considering the scenario of the towel fight, Katrina Kaif said,“It was a very, very difficult sequence to shoot because it has incredible hand to hand fighting inside a steamy Hammam room so gripping, fending, landing the punches and the kicks everything was very difficult.

What is Deepfake technology?
Artificial intelligence (AI) technology known as "deepfake" is used to produce incredibly lifelike and frequently misleading digital information. Its main application is in replacing or modifying an individual's voice and appearance in audio or video recordings. It can be difficult to distinguish between modified and true multimedia content since it uses sophisticated algorithms and machine learning approaches to create multimedia that seems authentic.
