Anurag Kashyap also greeted one of the actresses named Apeksha Porwal claiming her great performance in the show.
The show was promoting by calling the citizens of Mumbai through an unknown number saying that they have just encountered a murder and the person calling is going to be killed soon. And further, the person reveals that this is the Undekhi team promoting the upcoming series. However few people panicked and created chaos calling police stations.
The era of ‘any publicity is good publicity’ is a passé. Any publicity creating panic amongst citizens and suggesting a threat to their security will be dealt with necessary severity. Hope the fake calls for promotions aren’t bothering you any longer, Mumbaikars #SoNotDone
