Suneil Shetty, Akshay Kumar and Paresh Rawal starrer Hera Pheri franchise is one of the most successful franchises in Bollywood. The comedy caper, even after so many years of its release, is considered to be a classic. Fans have been eagerly waiting for the third part of the film – Hera Pheri 3 to happen and it looks like their wait will finally come to an end.
Suniel Shetty just confirmed that the franchise is returning and we are elated as much as you are. The Darbar actor revealed that the film is very much alive and in its pre-production phase. He added that the trio – he, Akshay Kumar and Paresh Rawal – will reunite for the film.
In an interview with Zoom, when Suniel was asked about the same, he said, ” No, I don’t think it is not happening. It is still there, very much alive and it will happen. And it will happen with the three of us because we three (Suniel, Akshay and Paresh Rawal) are also very keen also.”
He added, “Things have to be sorted out and they are being sorted so yes definitely the film will happen. Unfortunately, we were the ones who taught the world Bollywood how to get into the franchise business and we got out of it.”
Earlier, reports in Mumbai Mirror also revealed that producer Firoz Nadiadwala has brought the original director Priyadarshan back to make the 3rd instalment. It was being said that all three characters will play their real age in the film. A source close to the project informed Mumbai Mirror, “It takes off from where Phir Hera Pheri ended but fast-forwards into the present. The trip is desperate again but in a completely different scenario.”
Priyadarshan had also confirmed earlier that he is in talks with the entire team but it will be a while before he begins filming Hera Pheri 3. He said, “I am currently busy with my Malayalam film, Marakkar: The Lion of Arabian Sea. It is a huge film and I will only think about Hera Pheri after this one is out of my system. Nothing is concrete as yet.”
