The entire incident recorded by Kalsi and Kamboj appears to be inspired by a scene from a recently-released web series, which both have admitted in front of the police. At the time when the video was available on YouTube, it was garnering a lot of attention, with many people condemning the reckless driving behaviour of the YouTubers.
The video also caught the attention of the Gurugram Police. Based on the video as evidence, the police arrested Kalsi and Kamboj for dangerous driving on public roads and endangering the lives of others. The police have also said that all the currency notes thrown on the road, as seen in the video, were fake, just like how it was shown in the web series. The video was later deleted by Kalsi, however, the damage was already done, and the video had already gone viral.
According to Vikas Kaushik, Additional Commissioner of Police, DLF Gurugram, both the YouTubers have been arrested, and a case has been registered against them under IPC sections. The sections in the FIR against both of them are bailable. However, Kaushik has said that action had to be taken against both of them to set an example so that more people will not be encouraged to perform such antics.
