In a recent media interview, Bhuvan Arora, who plays Shahid Kapoor’s friend in their recent streaming series Farzi , is being appreciated for his role in the series. Arora had initially refused the part, thinking about the length of the character. It was casting director Mukesh Chhabra's agency that insisted for a small audition clip.

Talking about the same, Arora said, "So, I got a call from Mukesh Chhabra casting company saying they want to test me for a show. And the audition script was really small. So, I told them it seems like a small part and I don't really want to test for it. But they said, 'No, it's an important part, trust us.' And I very casually sent one take to them which they happily approved and sent it ahead to Raj & DK (the creators of the show)."

He further mentioned: "So, they saw the take and liked it but they weren't still 100 per cent confident till then. So, Mukesh Chhabra, the casting director, showed one of my ads that I did for Flipkart in which I speak really fast. They saw the ad and they absolutely loved it and said that if he can do this, he is absolutely a Firoz. So that's how I landed the role. I am overwhelmed and touched by the love coming my way. It was a heartwarming experience working on the show and I am beyond thrilled at the praises showered on us," he said.

Farzi also stars Kay Kay Menon, Amol Palekar, Raashi Khanna and Vijay Sethupathi as the antagonist, is a black comedy series surrounding an artiste who counterfeit Indian currency. The show is available to stream on Prime Video.
