After almost 32 years in the film industry, Akshay Kumar finally made his music video debut with Kriti Sanon's sister Nupur Sanon. The music video titled Filhall showed Akshay and Nupur as two people who are in love with each other but are separated due to their society's disapproval. The song recently crossed 100 million views on Youtube, becoming the fastest Indian music video to do so.
The actor took to Twitter to celebrate this milestone with singer B Praak who lent his voice to the track as well as co-star Nupur Sanon. "When I’d heard this song I knew it was extraordinary but never did I expect such a great response. A big THANK YOU to @BPraak @NupurSanon @yourjaani @arvinderkhaira @azeem2112 and most importantly YOU all (sic)," Akshay tweeted.
