From past some time, reports around Hera Pheri 4 have been making headlines every now and then. It all started when media reports started buzzing that Kartik Aaryan is likely to enter the franchise and will Akshay Kumar. However, later, it was said that nobody is replacing anybody- however, Kartik will be introduced as altogether a new character. Now in a surprising turn of events, T-Series has sent a notice to the makers for a very shocking reason. Scroll down for the details.
Cut short to the present, the film has gone on the floors, and recently, a photo featuring the leading trio Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty and Paresh Rawal surfaced on the web. But even before the film could complete even 50% of his shoot, it had already landed in trouble. Yes, you heard that right!
According to the notice which has been released In Trade Magazine, T-Series has issued a public notice to the makers of Hera Pheri 4, claiming all the audio and visual rights of every song in the Hera Pheri Franchise.
