Years after the passing of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, his devoted fans continue to remember him fondly. Rajput, who tragically passed away in his Mumbai residence in June 2020, remains a beloved figure, with enthusiasts dedicating social media pages to honour his legacy.
Recently, a man resembling the actor has captured social media’s attention, reigniting discussions about Rajput’s enduring influence. A user named Donim Ayaan, who began posting as early as June 26, 2023, has gained significant attention for his viral Reels on a photo-sharing platform, accumulating millions of views. While many have praised Ayaan’s videos and expressed their longing for Sushant Singh Rajput, scepticism has emerged regarding the authenticity of Ayaan’s resemblance, with suspicions of AI manipulation.
Among Ayaan’s transition videos, one has surpassed 24 million views. Responding to this content, a fan page dedicated to Sushant Singh Rajput accused Ayaan of relying on AI-generated content for attention, expressing disappointment with the pursuit of likes.
