Boney Kapoor Issues Warning Against Fake Casting Call For His Next Film
Boney Kapoor is also currently producing films with his kids, Arjun Kapoor and Janhvi Kapoor, titled Comali and Bombay Girl, respectively
Filmmaker Boney Kapoor is a huge name in the world of Bollywood. He was the mastermind behind hit TV show of the 90s, Hum Paanch and later, superhit films such as Mr India - which starred his younger brother Anil Kapoor and late wife, Sridevi - Judaai, Mom and many others. However, in recent news, fake casting call messages of his next film directed by H Vinoth have been rife. To avoid people from falling into the trap, Boney's advocate released a notice that was shared by the filmmaker on Twitter.

The notice read, "It has come to our client’s, Mr Boney Kapoor's, notice that fake messages are being posted on social media networking sites explicitly stating casting requirements for our client’s next film being directed by H Vinoth. We, on behalf of and as per our client’s instructions, hereby state that neither our client nor any of his production house/banners have at any time authorized or engaged any individual, agency, company or proprietorship concern to cast for our client’s film or issue any such messages. Thus we hereby call upon you to immediately refrain from responding to such fake messages. If at all any person, entity, etc. responds to such fake messages then neither our client nor any of his production companies will be liable or responsible for anything that transpires between the such persons responding to the fake messages and the initiator of such fake messages."
While that warning has been issued to the public, Boney is also currently in the process of finalising two more films starring his kids, Arjun Kapoor - who will appear in the Hindi remake of Comali - and Janhvi Kapoor - who will play the lead in a film titled Bombay Girl. Speaking of the same in an earlier interview, the filmmaker said, "I am surely very excited about the film. Janhvi will be doing something completely different from what she is doing in all her other movies. We are also pleased to have acquired remake rights of Comali for all languages in the world. And Arjun will star in the Hindi remake of the film."
