“Important Notice to all Actors - We are tired of all the #fraudmessages, #fakecastingcalls, #fakecastingrequirements #anonymoussocialmediahandles made under the name of @castingchhabra or people pretending to be working at MCCC,” he posted.

Chhabra further wrote: “After so many such instances, we have decided to have an official MCCC number to avoid all these fake actions. It is a humble request to all the actors to verify with us or inform us about these actions on the above mentioned contact number.

“Let’s stop this here and help each other to make this a better environment to work in this Industry. Also, all our team members names and photos are on our official website - Please be alert and safe.”

Earlier, the casting director had alerted everyone about a person who was claiming to be associated with the casting of the forthcoming film ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’.

“Once again for all the actors out there, please beware of such fake posts. Kindly do not respond to Pritesh Noidu who is claiming to be a part of this project,” Chhabra had tweeted along with a screenshot of the Wikipedia page of ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’.
