Mrighdeep Singh Lamba’s Fukrey 3 is all ready to go on the floor this month but the film will be going to roll without one lead member. As per the recent report, Ali Fazal has dropped out of Fukrey 3 quoting a packed filming schedule. Ali, who has been a key character in the Fukrey series, the audience won’t be able to see him in the third instalment as he has dedicated his dates to Vishal Bhardwaj’s Khufiya.
According to the sources, it is disclosed that the actor Ali Fazal is occupied with Khufiya and thus he was left with no choice but to let go of Mrighdeep Singh Lamba’s directorial Fukrey 3 as it will go on floors next week. “Ali was busy till early February with the shoot of Kandahar, and promotions of Death on the Nile. Keeping his commitments in mind, Vishal sir lined up Khufiya for February,” the source revealed.
The film Fukrey 3 has already been halted due to the pandemic. The source further adds, “Meanwhile, Mrighdeep got the combination dates of Richa, Pankaj Tripathi, Varun Sharma, Pulkit Samrat and Manjot Singh, and is eager to roll Fukrey 3. It’s an unfortunate turn of events, but Ali won’t be a part of it as he is busy with the thriller till March-end.”
Heightening on whether Ali’s character will be restored in Fukrey 3, the source said that the makers will rationalize his absence. “The story will be tweaked to justify Ali’s absence. He won’t be replaced,” the source concluded.
Ali Fazal was most previously seen in the Hollywood flick Death On The Nile and he has also finished with his shoot for Kandahar just last month.
