Bollywood star Abhishek Bachchan on board Hera Pheri 3 project is an old news. Rumours were floating around that since Akshay Kumar charged exorbidant amount close to 50 Crores, the makers couldn't bring him on the project.
However, their first choice was Irrfan Khan who had readily
agreed to do the film. But reasons known only to the makers, he was
suddenly dropped from the project.
A source has been quoted saying, "The makers told Irrfan that he would be offered a different role and that he's not a part of this film. When he learnt that Abhishek came on board, he got extremely angry as he was not kept in the loop about it."
Apparently, the film's spokesperson has said something
different, "Irrfan has been approached to play a lovable don in
Hera Pheri 3 and the makers are working on his role. Once
it is ready the producers will approach him."
Hera Pheri 3 directed by Neeraj Vora will have all the other star cast like from the prequel like Paresh Rawal, Suniel Shetty and John Abraham in interesting roles.
Now, we are not sure who grabbed roles from whom which is an interesting subject to debate (wink! wink!).
