Siddhant Chaturvedi and Tripti Dimri

Karan Johar remade the Marathi film Sairat in 2018 as Dhadak to launch star kids Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter in Bollywood. The film was directed by Shashank Khaitan and performed decently at the box office. Now as per the latest reports, Dharma Productions has started the work on Dhadak 2, which will bring together Siddhant Chaturvedi and Tripti Dimri for the first time.

Reports said the Dharma production house, Karan Johar believes that Dhadak was an intense tale of love, with two protagonists fighting society to live together. The filmmaker believes that this zone of going against all odds for love has the potential to get a franchise value. After contemplating several subjects, he has green-lit a subject that qualifies to be a sequel to Dhadak.

The film will be directed by Shazia Iqbal, marking her debut. The preparation work will begin soon and both the leads, Siddhant and Tripti, are excited to be working on this intense and raw love story.

Dhadak 2 is expected to go on floors in the second half of this year. The source also added that before taking the film on floors, there will be script reading sessions and acting workshops for the two leads. The film requires both the actors to be in a rooted set-up, with slight raw treatment to the story, which can only be polished through workshops.

It was further added that not all the cast members have been finalised yet and a top actor will come on board to play the antagonist, who is the girl’s father. Apart from the father, some other characters also warrant the presence of credible actors. A cast will be put together in a month’s time.

Tripti Dimri was last seen as the lead character in the Netflix film Qala, which was critically praised and loved by cinema enthusiasts. Siddhant was last seen in the film Gehraiyaan, opposite Deepika Padukone and Ananya Panday.

Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh, who’s recent deepfake video went viral on the intenet, has filled a police complaint over it.  After Rashmika Mandanna, Alia Bhatt and Nora Fatehi’s deepfake videos went viral, there was a general outcry against the improper use of technology and the lack of sufficient legal protections that have allowed this dangerous application of artificial intelligence (AI) to proliferate.

In a recent development, Ranveer Singh’s official spokesman revealed that a FIR has been filed for the Cyber Crime Cell to conduct additional investigation in response to a police complaint made by Ranveer.

The spokesperson said in a statement, yes, they have filed the police complaint and FIR has been lodged against the handle that was promoting the AI-generated deepfake video of Ranveer Singh.

In an artificial intelligence (AI) produced deepfake video, the actor can be seen discussing politics. However, originally the video was from his recent trip to Varanasi, but the audio is a voice clone created using artificial intelligence.

The Band Baja Barat actor was seen in the video pleading with voters to support Nayay (justice) in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. It was eventually made clear, though, that the viral video had been altered and changed. In addition, Ranveer addressed the matter and issued a social media warning, writing on X, “Deepfake se bacho dostonnnn.”

Earlier this month, Bollywood actor Aamir Khan was seen endorsing a political party in another deepfake video that went viral on social media. Following widespread public interest in the video, Mumbai police acted and filed an FIR against an unidentified individual. Khan’s office filed a police report (FIR) at the Khar Police station, citing pertinent parts of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) such as 419 (impersonation), 420 (cheating), and other Information Technology Act sections.

Aamir Khan’s spokesperson then released a statement in which they made it clear that the widely circulated video was fake.
