The promos of “Sur Ki Baazi” were aired very enthusiastically on GEO TV catching the attention of many people who wanted a platform and a chance to sing and prove their skills. But according to a source who made it to both the auditions (yes there were two of them), the auditions which were to be held on the 17th and 18th of January according to the promos, were actually fake as the real auditions were held early at Planet X in Islamabad.
