Even after decades since the first Hera Pheri film hit theatres fans of the iconic comedy film are still awaiting another sequel. Hera Pheri starred Akshay Kumar, Paresh Rawal and Suniel Shetty. Priyadarshan directed the original film which immediately became a cult classic in the genre of comedy films within Bollywood.
Later Neeraj Vora brought and directed Hera Pheri 2 with the same lead cast of Akshay Kumar, Suneil Shetty and Paresh Rawal. The film also starred Bipasha Basu and Rimi Sen in the lead roles. Ever since then fans are awaiting a third film in the franchise. Earlier this year Priyadarshan confirmed that he will soon be bringing back the original actor trio for Hera Pheri Part 3.
Now in a recent interview with Mumbai Mirror Suniel Shetty has opened up about the behind the scenes for Hera Pheri Part 3. He said, "Everything is on hold for now. The film's team intends to make Hera Pheri 3, but some differences need to be ironed out first. The film is a big hit on television as well as in the meme world and we are all aware of the anticipation among the audience for the film."
Last year Suniel had told PTI that he is excited about the third installment. "Talks are on with Priyadarshan for the third part. It should happen by the end of the year. There is a lot of discussion around it. I am excited about it," he had said.
