In a bid to go viral, Delhi-based YouTuber Joravar Singh Kalsi reenacted a scene from ‘Farzi’ show and threw money from a moving car. In the clip, the YouTuber, Joravar Singh Kalsi, and his friend, Gurpeet Singh, can be seen driving on Golf Course Road and throwing currency notes from the boot of the car while mouthing dialogues from the Shahid Kapoor starring web-series ‘Farzi’.

In the video, two men could be seen speeding and driving recklessly on Golf Course Road. One person is behind the wheel, while another could be seen opening the boot of the car and throwing currency notes on the road.
Both Joravar and his associates were arrested, and later released.
