Celebrities continue to be troubled by AI-generated images, and the alleged couple, Shubman Gill and Sara Tendulkar, are the most recent targets of this phenomenon.
A picture of Sara and Shubman has been circulating on the internet, capturing significant attention from online users. In the viral photograph, Sara can be observed embracing the Indian cricketer, and they appear joyfully posing for the picture.
While many were taken in by the image and genuinely thought that the alleged couple had publicly confirmed their relationship, a few individuals were able to discern that the picture had been digitally manipulated.
The original photograph features Sara and her brother Arjun Tendulkar. A person with a strong grasp of technology modified the image by superimposing Gill’s face onto Arjun’s body.
Meanwhile, Bollywood actress Sara Ali Khan, who appeared on Koffee with Karan Season 8 alongside Ananya Pandey, explicitly stated during the show that she is not the ‘Sara’ who is being associated with the cricketer. She alluded to the fact that it is Sara Tendulkar who is in a relationship with the Indian cricketer.
