Akshay Kumar has taken to social media to alert people against the fake casting calls for the much-anticipated sequel to hit song “Filhaal”.
Sung by BPrank, “Filhaal” was released last year and became an instant hit. The music video featured Akshay Kumar and marked the screen debut of Bollywood actress Kriti Sanon’s sister, Nupur Sanon. It also featured Punjabi singer & actor Ammy Virk.
“We have heard of fake news during COVID pandemic, but now ake casting has been happening”. #Filhall yeh padhiye#FakeNewsAlert #FakeCastingAlert,” highlights Akshay Kumar through his official social media accounts.
He debunked rumours of any casting happening for “Filhall-2” by sharing the official statement of production company Desi Melodies.
The statement reads: "For all the 'Filhall' fans out there! It has been brought to our notice that some impostors have made 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 of the original 'Filhall'. We would request all our fans and viewers to disregard any such fake casting call."
"Seeing the love and the phenomenal response for the first part of 'Filhall', we, as a team, were very excited to bring to you 'Filhall part 2 ' as soon as possible. However, while we fight through these times and respect the laws in place, we will soon be back with 'Filhall part 2'."
