The Deep fake technology replaces the person with another individual's resemblance, using powerful techniques from Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to manipulate or generate visual and audio content. It is challenging to differentiate the fake from the original.

Underlining the possible dangers of deep faking, Anand Mahindra posted a clip created by a man who demonstrated how this technology could fool them by producing altered content in an audio-visual form. 
The 56-second-long video shows the superimposed faces of Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan, Indian cricketer Virat Kohli, American actor and producer Robert Downey Jr, and Malayalam star Dulquer Salman.

In the video's caption, the business tycoon expressed concern over potentially deceptive to society. Nevertheless, it is a severe matter that should be managed at the earliest because one might never know who and when an evil-minded person uses this destructive tool for damaging purposes.

After being shared online, the video accumulated over 366K views and 8249 likes. The viral video disturbed social media users. Several netizens commented are worried that technology can be used for evil and spread fake news.
