the morphed clip shows her gyrating with her legs spread apart.
A bold deepfake video of Alia Bhatt has begun circulating on social media.
The video features a woman dressed in a revealing floral co-ord with Alia’s face superimposed onto the woman’s body.
Whilst sitting on a bed, ‘Alia’ was in a silk top and matching shorts.
The video shows the deepfaked Alia seductively looking at the camera before leaning back on the bed.
With her arms raised above her head, the morphed clip shows her gyrating with her legs spread apart.
Although the raunchy video went viral, it is clear that the clip is a deepfake.
Unnatural movements with Alia’s mouth are a clear sign that the video has been doctored.
Fans of the actress have also pointed out that Alia has a more slender body than the woman in the original video.
One user shared the original video to prove that the one of Alia is fake.
Despite social media users knowing that the video was fake, they were still concerned about the recent rise in Bollywood celebrities becoming the subject of deepfaking.
One person commented:
“An Alia Bhatt deepfake video is going viral. Where are we heading as a society?”
Alia Bhatt is yet to comment on the matter.

Deepfakes may have been on the web since 2017 but there has been a spate of Indian celebrities falling victim to edited photos and videos in recent weeks.
But it can be argued that a morphed video of Rashmika Mandanna sparked the recent rise.
A video appeared to show Rashmika entering a lift whilst dressed in a low-cut unitard.
However, the video was actually of a British influencer named Zara Patel.
Both Rashmika and Zara later expressed their concern with the video, calling it “scary”.
Meanwhile, Union Minister Rajeev Chandrasekhar said the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (Meity) will develop a platform where people can notify the ministry about IT rule violations by social media platforms.
He said: “Meity will put in place a platform through which the aggrieved people can very easily notify the ministry about the violations.
“Also, a mechanism will be designed to by the ministry that will assist them in filing FIRs.”
Section seven of the IT rules deals with revoking the intermediary status of social media platforms and taking action against them as per the Indian Penal Code if they fail to adhere to the rules.
