Is Akshay Kumar’s ‘FAU-G’ Game Poster ‘Copied’ from Stock Image? Twitter Wants to Know

There's a new game in town called FAU-G and it's already getting social media flak for the apparent lack of originality in its poster.

Days after PUBG was taken off the shelves among 118 apps following the fresh escalation with China in Ladakh, Akshay Kumar announced the release of a multiplayer action game called FAU-G, much to the amusement of gamers and Bollywood fans alike.

Kumar also stated that 20 per cent of its net proceeds donated to ‘Bharat Ke Veer Trust’ for the support of India’s bravehearts. The trust was also started by him.

“For youngsters in India, gaming is becoming an important form of entertainment. With FAU:G, I’m hoping that as they play the game they will learn about the sacrifices of our soldiers and also contribute to the families of the martyrs; and with this each one of us has the ability to support PM Modi’s vision of Atma Nirbhar,” said Kumar.

While the news was initially met with hilarious memes and mockery, there was something "fishy" in the game's poster that couldn't go ignored.

As a post from Twitter user @maximustaurean suggests, the makers of the poster used a stock image to show soldiers engaged in a battle.
