After much fan pressure, the Hera Pheri producers have agreed to welcome Akshay Kumar back. You read that correctly! Khiladi Kumar recently made headlines when he made the decision to leave the popular franchise. At a later event that caused a social media controversy and the hashtag #NoAkshayNoHeraPheri to go viral, he cited artistic differences as the cause. While it was initially rumoured that Kartik Aaryan would take his position, subsequent rumours indicated that he would instead be presented as a new character and not Raju.
However, it appears that the filmmakers have finally succeeded in persuading the actor and suggesting that the movie cannot be made without the famous trio. What's more, the Sooryavanshi actor is persuaded as well.
In the most recent development, producers agreed to meet with Akshay Kumar and get him back in Hera Pheri 3 in response to fans' constant demands. The actor and producer Firoz Nadiadwala have reportedly resumed speaking after meeting several times, according to the most recent media reports. The good news is that even Akki expressed interest in working with the producer and did so both as a creative individual and as an actor.
A source revealed to Pinkvilla, “While everything was on paper with regard to the casting of Hera Pheri 3 with Kartik Aaryan, the tides are now changing again. Over the last 10 days, Firoz has met Akshay Kumar a couple of times to sort out all the differences and get him back to the loved franchise. He realizes how iconic the character is and also acknowledges that the credit to make the character scale new heights goes to the way in which Akshay enacted the part.”
The source went on to state unequivocally that Akshay Kumar is important for the production of Hera Pheri. Discussions are also taking place about bringing back the most recognisable comedy series of Hindi cinema with the original actors. In order to create Hera Pheri 3, a movie that lives up to all the hype, waiting, and expectation, the actor has also expressed a desire to work with the producer both as an actor and creatively.
The pay issue was likewise disregarded by the same source. The script, not the money, was the reason Akshay decided not to participate in Hera Pheri, despite reports to the contrary. He didn't want to take anything for granted in order to profit from the brand name because he is aware of how huge a franchise is. However, he and Firoz will now sit down and make decisions regarding every element of Hera Pheri 3. If everything goes according to plan, Akshay might reprise his role as Raju in Hera Pheri 3, the source concluded.
