The iconic comedy-drama Hera Pheri, starring Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty and Paresh Rawal, is all set for its third chapter. This news is no less than a surprise for his fans. Producer Firoz Nadiadwala recently confirmed working on Hera Pheri 3 in an interview and revealed that it would feature the original cast.
The trio will make a splash.
In an exclusive conversation with Bollywood Hungama, he said, “You will get to see this very soon with the same star cast – Akshay Ji, Paresh Bhai and Sunil Ji. The story is in its place, and we are working on some other things. It will be made this way while maintaining innocence. We can’t take past achievements lightly. So we must be extra careful with our content, storey, script, characters.”
We will announce it soon.
Let us tell you that Hera Pheri was released in 2000, and then Hera Pheri was rereleased in 2006. Both the films have been successful in achieving the highest status. Although the producers did not reveal much, they indicated they have already shortlisted a director for the next sequel. He said about this, “We are in talks. We will announce soon.”
The work on the film had started in 2014 itself.
The first part was directed by Priyadarshan, while the late Neeraj Vora directed the sequel. Recently there were rumours that Dream Girl director Raaj Shaandilyaa will direct Hera Pheri 3. However, Firoz Nadiadwala said that this discussion is not proper. He also shared that the team started working on Hera Phera 3 in 2014 but had to stop it after Neeraj Vora fell ill. However, there will be a lot of changes in the new film in terms of story and characters.
It is essential to survive at the box office.
Firoz Nadiadwala may also form a franchise with Hera Pheri, with each film earning big bucks. He said, “It’s essential to survive at the box office. The moment you take something for granted, it falls. We hope Hera Pheri 4 and Hera Pheri 5 go even further. Also, it’s more than the previous ones. It must be better than parts.
