The clip originated from Ranveer's recent trip to Varanasi, where he talked about his spiritual experience in the city.

Ranveer Singh and Kriti Sanon walked the ramp for designer Manish Malhotra's fashion show at Varanasi's Namo Ghat. Before the show, they visited the Vishwanath temple and talked about their spiritual experiences. A video of Ranveer talking about his experience in Varanasi seems to have been altered to make it sound like the actor is endorsing a certain political party for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.

In the doctored video, Ranveer is heard saying, "This is Modiji's purpose. He intended to celebrate our sad lives, our fear, our unemployment and inflation. Because our India is now heading towards a time of injustice at such a pace... so we should never stop demanding our development and justice - this is why we must think and vote."

After the video went viral, an alarmed Ranveer stepped in to clear the air about the video. "Deepfake se bacho dostonnnn," he posted on social media.

Fans rallied behind the actor and posted both the deepfake and original videos in the comments to help bring forth the truth.
