Hera Pheri 3: Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty and Paresh Rawal to get back together?
Hera Pheri’s third installment is all set to go on floors this year. The original film’s star cast – Akshay Kumar, Paresh Rawal and Sunil Shetty – will play lead roles in Hera Pheri 3.
When Akshay Kumar, Paresh Rawal and Sunil Shetty came together for a film in the year 2000, it went on to become a cult classic. Hera Pheri, which was then directed by Priyadarshan, is still one of the most loved comedy films in Bollywood till date. Though the sequel of the film, Phir Hera Pheri, wasn’t able to match up to the original film, the makers of the film have decided to bring the trio together for the third installment of the film.
It is reported that producer Firoz Nadiadwala as joined hands with director Indra Kumar for the third Hera Pheri.
A source close to the film told a daily, At present, the film is in the scripting stage. Indra Kumar has been working with his team of writers on the story since May last year and has already locked the first half, while the second half requires some more work. He will jump into it after the release of his upcoming directorial, Total Dhamaal.
The source added, The delays happened due to issues in the script. Hera Pheri is an iconic franchise and the team is in no hurry to take it on floors. Though everyone is excited, no one wants to compromise on the script for a substandard product to capitalise on the franchise’s power.
Earlier, it was reported that Akshay had initially walked out of the franchise after a fallout with Firoz. However, now it is learnt that they have kept aside their differences for the film.
