Akshay Kumar warns against fake casting calls for Filhall 2
The makers of the hit music video have denied authorizing any new casting call for its sequel
Akshay Kumar has alerted his fans against fake casting calls for Filhall 2. Earlier this year, Akshay had announced a sequel to his hit 2019 music video Filhall, co-starring debutante Nupur Sanon. Voiced by B Praak and released by Desi Melodies, Filhall had crossed over 700 million views on YouTube. The song, which narrates the love story of a doctor and his ex-lover, will be getting a second installment. However, the makers have issued a statement that they are not looking to cast anyone new for the track and warned people to not respond to any fake casting calls doing the rounds.
“We have heard a lot of fake news in the time of Corona but now fake casting is also happening,” Akshay wrote posting the clarification on Twitter.
The statement reads: “It has been brought to our notice that some impostors have made a fake news for casting of the song ‘Filhall part 2’. We, the team of Filhall, would like to clarify that neither we nor our production house/banner have authorised or engaged any individual, agency, partnership firm or company to cast for the sequel of our song ‘Filhall’.”
“In fact, we are not looking at casting anybody new for the sequel of Filhall and we assure you that the story of Filhall continues and will be portrayed by the original cast and the same team.”
