One of the most well-known generative AI models is the Generative Adversarial Network (GAN), which is frequently employed for data generation or augmentation. In this paper a reliable GAN-based CNN deepfake detection method utilizing GAN as an augmentation element is implemented. It aims to give the CNN model a big collection of images so that it can train better with the intrinsic qualities of the images. The major objective of this research is to show how GAN innovations have enhanced and increased the use of generative AI principles, particularly in fake image classification called Deepfakes that poses concerns about misrepresentation and individual privacy.  For identifying these fake photos more synthetic images are created using the GAN model that closely resemble the training data.  It has been observed that GAN-augmented datasets can improve the robustness and generality of CNN-based detection models, which correctly identify between real and false images by 96.35%.
