Vishal Gondal, Co-founder of Indian game developing company, that announced an action game FAU-G moderated by actor Akshay Kumar, issues a statement addressing the rumours surrounding it. It was being said that late actor Sushant Singh Rajput had conceptualised the game.
In a statement, Vishal clarifies, “This statement is being issued to address certain ongoing conversations/rumours on social media that FAU-G was conceptualised by late actor Shri Sushant Singh Rajput, which is completely false and baseless.”
“nCore was founded in 2019 by an Indian entrepreneur Mr Vishal Gondal and Mr Dayanadhi MG & others who have been in the gaming industry for over 20 years. It involves a team of over 25 programmers, artists, testers, designers who have worked on top gaming titles in the past and are currently developing the FAU-G game.”
Vishal Gondal started his 1st gaming company Indiagames in 1998, which was sold 100% to Walt Disney in 2012, and he is also called the father of the Indian gaming industry. Sushant Singh Rajput also had a special interest in sci-fi and he also was into gaming.

Mr. Akshay Kumar has been a mentor to nCore. FAU-G is designed and developed by the team at nCore.All copyright & intellectual property related to FAU-G is owned by nCore.
On the plagiarism row, he adds, “Further, stories are doing the rounds that the poster of our action game, FAU-G, is plagiarised. We would like to further clarify that we have officially bought the license to use the image from Shutter Stock.

Sushant Singh Rajput fans have been brutally trolling the game FAU-G and Akshay Kumar on social media. This statement from the makers should clarify things and put the rumours to rest.
