Fukrey 3 To Revolve Around COVID-19 Pandemic? Director Mrigdeep Singh Lamba Sheds Some Light
Fukrey and Fukrey Returns left the masses in splits. The films starring Pulkit Samrat, Ali Fazal, Varun Sharma, Richa Chadha, Manjot Singh and others enthralled one and all with its comedy. Now, it is time to gear up for Fukrey 3. The film helmed by Mrigdeep Singh Lamba and produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani's Excel Entertainment is said to go on floors as soon as the lockdown is lifted. However, now the director has stated that he may twist the story of Fukrey 3 around Coroanvirus crisis.

Talking to news agency PTI, Mrigdeep was quoted saying, "This part too will have a strong message that people will take away and it will be delivered in a humorous way. The original story doesn’t mention it (about Covid-19). But we have been contemplating. We have discussed it. We need to be careful how we show it (Covid-19 situation) it shouldn’t seem forceful." He further mentioned that even if he is unable to add something about COVID-19 to Fukrey 3, he'll make a full-fledged film on it with a touch of humour.

Talking about Fukrey 3 and its production, the director stated that the work on it began before the lockdown was imposed. They are waiting for the lockdown to get over so that they can begin the production work on this film. "We had started working on it before lockdown and now we connect via phone. We have got a story in place and the writing is almost 80 per cent complete. We are working on the screenplay, which is almost done. Once things start to normalise and we have rules in place, then we will decide how and when to take it ahead. We will understand the ground reality before going on floors. The production was earlier slated to begin by October-November but nothing is certain now," he said. (Also Read: Ali Fazal And Richa Chadha To Reunite For Farhan Akhtar's Fukrey 3?)
