Hera Pheri fans can do a happy dance as the third instalment is happening for real. Producer Firoz Nadiadwala who treated us with Hera Pheri 18 years ago is gearing up for the third instalment of the film. Hera Pheri 3 will reunite Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty and Paresh Rawal. We cannot even begin to think how entertaining this one would be. Indra Kumar who has helmed Masti and Dhamal will direct the third installment of Hera Pheri.
The filmmaker took to Twitter to confirm that Hera Pheri 3 is happening. He wrote, “This is going to be a fun project with a stellar star cast @akshaykumar @SunielVShetty @SirPareshRawal Looking forward to #HeraPheri3” A source while talking to Mumbai Mirror about Hera Pheri 3 was quoted saying, “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.”
While Priyadarshan directed the first one in 2000, late filmmaker Neeraj Vora directed the sequel in 2006. Vora had reportedly locked the story, screenplay and dialogues. The pre-production had begun in Delhi in the summer of 2016 when Neeraj slipped into a coma in October. Following this, Firoz Nadiadwala decided to take care of Neeraj and moved him to his own home so that he got the best medical care. Unfortunately, the filmmaker passed away in December last year.
