The CEO of Mosfilm made a decision regarding Bril and Akhedzhakova in "Irony of Fate"

Karen Shakhnazarov, the CEO of the Russian film studio Mosfilm, has responded to calls to remove pro-Ukrainian actresses from the movie "The Irony of Fate." This concerns Russian celebrity Liya Akhedzhakova and her Polish colleague Barbara Brylska, whose faces were intended to be replaced using "deepfake" technology.

This was reported by media sources with a particular perspective. Such a "creative" idea emerged amidst the support for Ukrainian stars in the war against the Russian invasion, particularly initiated by members of the State Duma.

Mosfilm's Director-General continued, stating that the actresses' statement "has no significance for world history." "We have no intention of changing the movie, and there will never be any, because I personally think it's a great stupidity," the director emphasized.

After the full-scale invasion began, Barbara Brylska, who played the lead role in "The Irony of Fate," announced that she would never come to Russia again. She later spoke about the economic challenges faced by Russian cities. In turn, Liya Akhedzhakova has been critical of the Russian authorities for many years, condemning the occupiers in the war with Ukraine.
