There’s no replacing the cult comedy Hera Pheri franchise, and there’s no denying, the films have a special place in the hearts of the audiences across the globe. The first film in the franchise was released in 2000, followed by Phir Hera Pheri in 2006, now its massive fan-following is eagerly waiting for the third film and actor Paresh Rawal has finally spoken about the Hera Pheri sequel.
Rawal has effortlessly managed to win hearts with his impeccable performance as Baburao Ganpatrao Apte or Babu Bhaiya in Priyadarshan's film Hera Pheri. However, fans can’t keep calm, owing to the rumours around the film’s third instalment.
Speaking to ETimes, Paresh said that he has no excitement left in him for the Hera Pheri sequel.
He said, “If you ask me honestly, there is no excitement left in me for any of my characters unless it is put in a different backdrop. If I have to do the same thing again, usi prakar ki dhoti pehenke, chashme lagake chalna hai (if I have to wear a similar dhoti and walk in the same way with glasses)... except for money, of course, I will charge a bomb! So apart from money, there will be no joy for me. So the story has to be good. If we are coming up with a sequel of Hera Pheri after so many years, with the same old ghisa-pita jokes, it will not work. It should evolve and only then I will be excited about it. Otherwise, wahi chabaya hua niwala firse chabana hai, it will not give that excitement to me.”
Directed by Priyadarshan, the on-screen chemistry of Paresh, Akshay Kumar, and Suniel Shetty was off the charts and it hooked the audience on the screen.
