Hera Pheri OG trio Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty and Paresh are back and have already reportedly begun shooting for the 3rd instalment
The excitement around the third instalment of Bollywood’s much-loved franchise Hera Pheri has been burgeoning since its announcement. Initially, the film wasn’t planned with the OG trio and it included Paresh Rawal, Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham. However, due to unknown reasons, John and Abhishek opted out. Now, according to the latest update, the OG trio Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty and Paresh are back and have already reportedly begun shooting for the 3rd instalment.
Apart from the actors, the film’s director has been making it to the headlines as Anees Bazmee’s ouster has worked out in favour of Farhad Samji.
Since the announcement of Hera Pheri 3, the rumours were abuzz that Anees will helm the film. However, the latest reports suggest others wise.
Fans were left surprised, as the news of Farhad Samji directing Hera Pheri 3 surfaced the internet and many were puzzled questioning what transpired behind the stage. Now, Anees Bazmee has finally broken his silence on the project and revealed that Akshay Kumar too wasn’t ready to do the film without a script however he doesn’t know what changed and how Kumar ended up coming on board.
In a recent interview with BollywoodHungama, Anees Bazmee stated that he met the producer Firoz Nadiadwala several times and he didn’t have much of a story let alone a script. “Unhone jo mujhe idea bataya woh kuch jammee nahin. Maina na keh diya,” said the filmmaker. Adding “No script no hit. It’s as simple as that.”
Elaborating further Anees Bazmee said, “After I declined the offer, I now hear the film is going to be directed by someone else (Farhad Samji). Akshay Kumar who was totally opposed to doing the film without a proper script has apparently agreed to come on board. I don’t know how or why. Only he will be able to tell. Speaking for myself, I am not part of that project anymore.”
During the same interaction, Anees was also asked if he opted out of the film because Firoz Nadiadwala still owed him money for the last film that they did together. To which Anees concluded, “Yes, that too. But if I had liked the story idea I would have probably gone ahead. Lekin aisa kuch tha hi nahin.”
