Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan has demanded a legal action over a reported morphed video of his ‘Goodbye’ co-star Rashmika Mandanna. Reportedly, a short objectionable video of the actress went viral in the social media.

Amitabh also shared a video of information on X. In response to post on X by a user highlighting the alleged misuse of the video, the ‘Piku’ star said: "Yes this is a strong case."
"There is an urgent need for a legal and regulatory framework to deal with deepfake in India.You might have seen this viral video of actress Rashmika Mandanna on Instagram. But wait, this is a deepfake video of Zara Patel," a user named Abhishek wrote on the microblogging site. Along with the post, he also shared the "actual" video as claimed by him.
Amitabh and Rashmika have worked together in 'Goodbye,' a family comedy-drama film written and directed by Vikas Bahl and produced by Bahl, Viraj Savant, Ekta Kapoor and Shobha Kapoor.
