Shahid Kapoor and Kriti Sanon have been busy with the promotion of their upcoming film Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya. In their recent interview with India Today, Shahid and Kriti spoke about how their movie explores an ‘impossible love story’ in the uncharted territories of artificial intelligence (AI). When asked about the surge in deepfake videos, Shahid blamed human beings for the misuse of AI, saying ‘There’s a difference between man-made and God created’.

‘We are looking for an alternate reality’
Shahid Kapoor said, ”Human beings are themselves the problem. They have done this to the world. We are pushing the blame on AI. We are used to not living in reality. We keep projecting something else on social media that is not a reality and keep comparing reality with what we see on social media and then leads one into depression. That is the truth… we are looking for an alternate reality. That is what AI is and it is something as fundamental as a relationship. There is a difference between man-made and God created. This is there in this film (Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya), shown in a subtle way.”
Kriti Sanon also said, ”It is concerning and there are several morphed ones that came out. But there are also AI-generated news anchors which means that we are moving forward really fast. So, an AI partner is possible in coming years.”
