The success of Phir Hera Pheri has infused faith in sequels.
With the sequel to Hera Pheri fetching an extra-ordinary
start at the box-office, producer Firoz A. Nadiadwala has decided
to continue with the Hera Pheri series by making its third
installment now. Yes, after Phir Hera Pheri, there's going
to be Hera Pheri III.
"Oh yes, the third part of Hera Pheri is 100% on," Nadiadwala sounds super excited as he discloses plans of the third
installment, "The escapades of Raju, Shyam and Baburao will
continue. There's no stopping them now. In fact, Khadak Singh [Om
Puri], who featured in the first part [Hera Pheri], will
now return in the third part. Besides, we will introduce a number
of new characters in the third installment."
But will the principal star cast change or will Akshay and
Suniel team up again? Reportedly, the two actors had a major
showdown after a close-door screening of Phir Hera Pheri,
with Suniel accusing Akshay of editing his role in the final cut of
the film. "Of course, both Akshay and Suniel will feature in
Hera Pheri III. All misunderstandings have been sorted out
and the two have decided to be a part of Hera Pheri III.
In fact, we resolved the differences a few days before Phir
Hera Pheri hit the screens," he clarifies.
Nadiadwala is yet to finalize a title for Hera Pheri
III. "We may add a word before Hera Pheri. There are
two/three options, but we've yet to zero in on the final title," he
states. Neeraj Vora, who scripted-directed Phir Hera
Pheri, will direct Hera Pheri III as well.
