Ayesha Mano, Pakistan’s social media sensation, is known for her bold and stylish outfits that frequently go viral on platforms like TikTok and Instagram. However, her latest viral video has left the internet confused about whether the woman featured is actually Ayesha Mano or an artificial intelligence-generated “deepfake.”
Ayesha Mano rose to fame after a TikTok video of her dancing to the Bollywood song “Mera Dil Yeh Pukare Aaja” spread widely online. Though Ayesha was recently rumored to have overdosed and passed away, she denied those claims. Her casual and laidback look in distressed jeans, a gray sweater, and sneakers in her most recent viral video seemed perfectly in line with her signature style.
However, some internet users questioned if the woman in the new viral clip was really Ayesha or instead a fabricated video made using advanced AI technology. Given the increasing sophistication of deepfake tools and Ayesha’s widespread fame, some felt the chances of an AI-manipulated video were high. The ease of accessing and using AI and deepfake software has enabled the creation of highly realistic fake videos, raising concerns about their potential misuse.
While Ayesha’s management team has not yet verified whether she is actually the woman featured in the latest viral video, the mystery surrounding its authenticity highlights the growing threat of deepfakes and the need to develop better detection tools.
As AI continues to advance, deepfakes are becoming more common and harder to identify, posing risks to privacy, security, and trust in the digital world. The controversy over Ayesha Mano’s latest viral hit demonstrates how even lighthearted social media posts and influencer culture can be impacted by the spread of synthetic media. Overall, the situation serves as a warning that in today’s world, seeing is not always believing.
