A picture of Shubman Gill and Sara Tendulkar is doing the rounds on social media which has shocked netizens as the latter is seen hugging the Indian cricketer in the click.
Several fans of the two young stars were happy to see that the two rumoured lovebirds made their relationship sort of official with this picture. But upon digging a bit further, the Free Press Journal can confirm that the picture is morphed.
The real picture of Sara has her brother Arjun Tendulkar in it. Some internet user has just put Gill's face on Arjun's body and circulated the picture online.
Fake pictures and videos of popular celebrities are going viral on social media these days which has raised a serious concern regarding the lack of privacy of public figures.
Recently, a deepfake video of Bollywood actress Rashmika Mandanna was circulated heavily on social media while a morphed picture of Katrina Kaif's towel scene from her upcoming film Tiger 3 also went viral.
These incidents have prompted the Union IT Ministry to launch a probe and warn social media platforms like X (formerly Twitter) and Instagram to remove such obscene videos and pictures from the internet.
