Previously, Aamir Khan fell victim to deepfakes after his video ostensibly advocating a political party went viral.

According to an official, Mumbai Police have filed an FIR against an unnamed individual in connection with a deepfake video of Bollywood actor Aamir Khan allegedly endorsing a political party.

The FIR was filed on Wednesday at the Khar police station in response to a complaint from Aamir Khan's office under pertinent Indian Penal Code sections such as 419 (impersonation), 420 (cheating), and provisions of the Information Technology Act, according to the officer. In the reported 27-second footage, which appears to have been edited using artificial intelligence (AI) technology, Aamir discusses avoiding hyperbole (jumla).

A representative for Aamir Khan said on Tuesday that while the actor has previously encouraged election awareness through Election Commission programmes, he has never endorsed a political party.
