GOQii Technologies Private Limited and Studio nCore Private Limited, the creators of FAU-G (Fearless and United Guard) have got relief over the upcoming game being linked to Sushant Singh Rajput. A Mumbai civil court has passed a restraining order against unknown persons from sharing posts, tweets and videos claiming that the game was the brainchild of the late actor. The maker reacted to the news with delight as they hit out at the ‘conspiracy theories’ carried out by ‘miscreants.’
