Ratan Tata's deep fake video

This is not the first instance of Ratan Tata addressing fake news. In December of the previous year, he exposed a deepfake video that depicted him asking people to invest money in a project, which he denounced as fraudulent.

"I get millions of messages a day asking me to help you. Together with my manager Sona Agarwal, I launched a project. In order to get into the project, you need to deposit a minimum amount," the video wrongly showed Tata as saying. While sharing the video on his Instagram story, Ratan Tata alerted people and called it fake.
