Producer Firoz Nadiadwala does not even have one script prepared, let alone two, suggest recent reports.
Since Kartik Aaryan's presence in the much-loved franchise's third instalment was confirmed by Paresh Rawal, a lot has been said and written about the film. The much-awaited Hera Pheri 3 gained extra interest after Akshay Kumar said he was leaving the franchise at an event. He justified his choice by pointing to disparities in creativity. Aaryan will take over as Raju, according to one rumour, but other reports claim that he won't replace Akki but rather will be introduced as a new character.
According to some earlier reports, Khiladi Kumar might return to the franchise because of discussions he's had with the film's producers and his own desire to do so. But later, these reports were debunked too.
Media rumours have been circulating for the past few days that the writers of Hera Pheri 3 had prepared two distinct screenplays for Akshay Kumar and Kartik Aaryan. According to the most recent information, director Firoz Nadiadwala has sealed two scripts for the film, one with Akki and one without. After that, he started meeting with the main actor on a regular basis. But it appears that there is no truth to it.
Producer Firoz Nadiadwala does not even have one script prepared, let alone two, suggest recent reports. Firoz told ETimes that the claims that he had two distinct screenplays ready for two actors were false. He said, “we are still to figure out the screenplay for Hera Pheri 3. I have an idea. But it is yet to be scripted.”
On the other hand, a source close to the same development revealed, “Akshay never had any intentions of being a part of Hera Pheri 3. As for Kartik, with all this back-and-forth on the casting, he may also opt out of the project, as there is no clarity yet on the script, cast or timeline for shooting.”
