On 8 October, Bollywood actor Disha Patani uploaded a 13-second video to Instagram pretending to be starring in the superhit DC comic film Wonder Woman. In the video, Patani’s face was swapped out with that of Hollywood star Gal Gadot who is seen fighting and performing stunts. Soon enough, Patani’s 30-million Instagram fans were speculating that she’d be the next Wonder Woman. Not quite yet.
Patani was promoting the launch of a new deepfake application Noizz, which lets users realistically morph their faces with film or TV characters by uploading selfies.
