The epitome of classic comedy ‘Hera Pheri’ which left the audience laugh their lungs out, is back with their third sequel, reports confirmed. With the same star trio of Paresh Rawal, Sunil Shetty and Akshay Kumar the film is very much back on track after several delays.
Nineteen years after the first of the sequel released, the makers have once again decided to rule the theatre with the most loved comedy film of Bollywood.
‘Phir Hera Pheri’ the 2006 sequel of the film couldn’t match up to the original. The second part of the sequel included the Rimi Sen and Bipasha Basu as female leads apart from the trio.
A source close to the film told a daily, “At present, the film is in the scripting stage. Indra Kumar has been working with his team of writers on the story since May last year and has already locked the first half, while the second half requires some more work. He will jump into it after the release of his upcoming directorial, Total Dhamaal.”
Indra Kumar, who’s upcoming Total Dhamaal is all set to release next month, has been signed by filmmaker Firoz Nadiadwala for ‘Hera Pheri 3’.
While the ‘Hera Pheri’ was directed by Priyadarshan, ‘Phir Hera Pheri’was directed by veteran actor Neeraj Vora who passed away in 2017 after being in coma for months.
The source added that the delays happened due to issues in the script. ‘Hera Pheri’ is an iconic franchise and the team is in no hurry to take it on floors. Though everyone is excited, no one wants to compromise on the script for a substandard product to capitalise on the franchise’s power.
