Indian YouTuber recreates Shahid Kapoor's 'Farzi' scene, throws cash from car
YouTuber Jorawar Singh Kalsi and his friend Gurpreet Singh were arrested by the police
A video of a man in Haryana, India, throwing cash from the trunk of his car has gone viral on social media. Jorawar Singh Kalsi and Gurpreet Singh attempted to recreate a scene from Shahid Kapoor and KK Menon's web series Farzi (Fakes).
According to Vikas Kaushik, ACP, DLF Gurugram, in an interview with ANI, "Police were made aware of an incident via a social media video in which two men attempted to recreate a scene from a movie by throwing currency notes from a car on Golf Course Road.
The police have filed a case under various sections of the IPC (Indian penal code). The main suspect has been identified." Apart from the arrested accused, two others were also riding a motorcycle and recording the video showing currency notes, the police official said.
Currency notes were also recovered from Jorawar Singh Kalsi's custody, and the authority is also trying to recover the car. Instances like this have been on the rise in India as a result of Kapoor's popular web series, in which the actor and his co-star perform a similar stunt to evade the police.
A similar video of an unidentified individual apparently throwing cash (Rs10 notes) from Bengaluru's KR Puram flyover surfaced on the internet in January of this year. The man came to a halt on the flyover and threw money at onlookers and into the crowd below.
