Farzi in literal translation from Hindi to English means counterfeit or fake. The story is somewhat related to the actual meaning of its name. Sunny an artist, whose character is played by Shahid Kapoor is disgusted about the income disparity in India after he fails to maintain his grandfather’s printing press business. Then he decides to print fake currency and launder it in economic circulation facing constant threats and obstacles along the way with a local gangster Mansoor and a police official Michael. This web series will remind you of a movie by Shahid Kapoor that was released nearly a decade ago in 2010 named “Badmaash Company” where they found a loophole in business operations and are able to score a fortune by manipulating laws in their favor.
The Fazri web series was loved by all viewers as soon as the first season was released. Since then the viewers are constantly looking up for updates on the second season. The fact checker for its popularity is its rating on the well-known platform IMDb where it has been rated a solid 8.4/10.
