The buzz of the town these days is the mobile application Face App. Over the last couple of days, you must have come across memes on social media, making celebrities and Cricketers look much older/younger than their actual age. That magical transformation of their looks is taken care of by artificial intelligence (AI) technology. The latest Bollywood celebrity to join the bandwagon to take up this viral challenge was none other than Anupam Kher. However, the actor's caption is winning the internet and definitely should not be missed! Stating that he is a 'lovable, young and bald boy', the actor wrote, "At home people call me Bittu", and further asked netizens if they liked the picture.

FACE APP CONTROVERSY 

One of the primary concerns about FaceApp is how it stores photos of users on a cloud server for image processing. And since FaceApp takes up only about 10MB of your phone's storage, it's virtually impossible for any app of this size to process photos locally on your device. So we asked the FaceApp to clear the air on the privacy concerns. In a detailed statement to Republic World, FaceApp founder Yaroslav Goncharov addressed every single privacy concern about the app. Addressing privacy concerns about storing photos in the cloud, Goncharov clarified FaceApp only uploads photos you select for editing. Other than that, it doesn't transfer any other images on its own.
