Both Hera Pheri and Phir Hera Pheri are the movies that have boasted of an impressive coming timing as well a fun filled plot. While we’ve been waiting for long time, for a third instalment to roll out in this popular comedy franchise, there might be some good news for fans.
Producer Firoz Nadiadwala confirmed that the third film in the Heri Pheri franchise will happen soon. The 2000 cult classic, Hera Pheri, which was directed by Priyadarshan, who is also an acclaimed name in Malayalam cinema, featured Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty and Paresh Rawal, and was later followed by a second instalment, titled Phir Hera Pheri in 2006, with actresses Bipasha Basu and Rimi Sen being added to the star cast.
“You’ll get to see it very soon with the same star cast – Akshay ji, Paresh bhai and Suniel ji. The story is in place, and we are working on certain modalities. It’ll be made in the same way, retaining the innocence of the characters.” Firoz revealed. The producer also talked about how the makers cannot bank on the success that they attend with the previous two instalments, and that they will have to take special care with regards to what they roll out in the upcoming franchise as well. “We can’t take past achievements for granted. So, we have to be extra careful in terms of our content, story, screenplay, characters, mannerism etc,” he added.
The producer also revealed that the makers are shortlisting who will direct the upcoming film. “We’ll make the announcement soon,” he said.
