Mumbai: The teaser of an upcoming Akshay Kumar music video became a huge hit within a few hours of its release on Wednesday.
The music video in question is ‘Filhaal 2: Mohabbat’, the sequel of Akshay-Nupur Sanon starrer Filhaal. Such is the level of craze that there were a whopping 7.5 million views across social media platforms just three hours after the teaser was released.
The chemistry between Akshay and the much younger Nupur – sister of Kriti Sanon – caught the eye of the audience in Filhaal, which was released in November 2019. It was a poignant tale of ex-lovers who meet after a long time under unpredictable circumstances, but can’t be with each other.
Filhaal 2 promises similar chemistry, with the same team coming together again.
