If you are into Bollywood comedy flicks, chances are that the iconic Hera Pheri and its sequel Phir Hera Pheri are among your favorite films!
The first Hera Pheri was released back in 2000 while the second installment of the series was released in 2006.
Both the film feature Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty and Paresh Rawal in lead roles.
For more than a decade, fans have been waiting for the release of the next installment in the series, Hera Pheri 3.
However, it seems like their wish will not be coming true anytime soon.
Actor Sunil Shetty recently revealed that although the team wants to continue with the third Hera Pheri movie, there are some major differences that need to be sorted first.
While speaking to Mumbai Mirror, Shetty said: “Everything is on hold for now.”
While the team intends to make the third installment “some differences need to be ironed out first,” he added.
The actor also said, “we are all aware of the anticipation among the audience for the film.”
Earlier, the actor had expressed his excitement over Hera Pheri 3. “We have a lot of respect for each other and so I think it works like magic and I’m looking forward to it. It will happen and whenever it does I know it will happen,” he said.
It has been 20 years since the release of the first film in the series. During an interview, Sunil said, “I don’t know how the film was made, it just happened.”
He added, “We arrived on the sets every morning, the costumes were basically just stretched and given to us, not even ironed. The director would ask us to sleep in the afternoon on paper, so we used to sleep on newspapers.”The entertainment industry remains shut amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. A number of big releases, including Rohit Shetty’s Sooryavanshi and Kabir Khan’s 83 have been delayed indefinitely.
