JALANDHAR: In an incident of another cybercrime, Punjabi Film Actress Mandy Takhar has lodged a complaint in the cyber Cell of Mohali Police station against posting her fake video showing her in “bad light”.

 

On August 27, a fake video in which Mandy’s face was morphed onto that of an adult movie star and uploaded on adult content sites by unknown people, went viral, sources said.

 

 "Mandy handled the situation with immense grace and strength, and initially stayed silent on the matter but eventually the cyberbullying and trolling evidently affected her peace and she finally spoke up a few days later," a close associate of Mandy said.

 

Confirming that the video is fake, she took to her social media post, stating how she is absolutely disappointed and disheartened with people who are making the video more viral even though everyone is aware it’s fake.


She got an FIR registered against the culprits, which includes the websites that the fake video was uploaded on and also those defaming the actress on social media platforms.

 

The FIR has been lodged under section 67(A), 67, 66(E) of Technology Act 2000 and section 509, 354 of Indian Penal Code 1860.

 

Mandy has done significant work in the Punjabi film industry with films like, 'Rabb da radio', 'Ardas', 'Sardaarji' among others.

 

According to the source, " Mandy is keeping strong and feels grateful that her fans and colleagues are very supportive, making her feel more loved and respected."
