After years of speculations and countless media stories, ‘Hera Pheri 3’ is finally happening and fans cannot be happier than this. Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty and Paresh Rawal, who tickled our funny bones by playing three crazy characters of Raju, Shyam and Baburao Ganpatrao Apte respectively, are coming back to take us on another joyride.
While the first instalment of the series, ‘Hera Pheri’ (2000), was helmed by Priyadarshan and second part, ‘Phir Hera Pheri’ (2006) by Neeraj Vora, ‘Hera Pheri 3’ will be directed by director Indra Kumar who has a number of successful comedies to his credit.
A source close to the development reveals to a popular tabloid that all three main actors have given their dates and the project will take off at the end of the year. “The project was locked last month after the three actors gave their dates. It will be shot in a start-to-finish schedule between December 2018 and February 2019 and will release in the second half of next year.”
‘Hera Pheri 3’ was first planned in 2014. Director Neeraj Vora had even locked the final script. However, before he could begin the production, a tragedy befell him and she slipped into coma. After remaining in coma for over a year, he breathed his last on 14th December 2017. After his death, the directorial baton has now been passed on to director Indra Kumar who is currently shooting for the multi-starrer ‘Total Dhamaal’.
‘Hera Pheri 3’ will be bankrolled by Firoz Nadiadwala.
