Suniel Shetty also spoke about Farhad Samji replacing Anees Bazmee as the director of Hera Pheri 3.
People have been talking a lot about the planned sequel to the popular comedy Hera Pheri, especially after actors Akshay Kumar, Paresh Rawal, and Suniel Shetty were seen filming a promo for it. Suneil, who is overjoyed to be reuniting with the team, assures fans of the classic that they don't want the well-known Hera Pheri to suffer from any mistakes they make in the future.
A picture of the star cast's reunion came out a few weeks ago. This ended much of the speculation about who would be in the next Hera Pheri episode and who would be in charge of the project. Talking about the same, Suneil told ETimes that it didn't seem like that many years had passed when they all gathered for the photo session. Having Akshay back in the franchise is a wonderful experience. It works best in that sequence, and for him, Hera Pheri will always be about Babu bhaiya (Paresh Rawal), Raju (Akshay), and Shyam (Suniel). Although there have been many rumours, they are all aware of the actual plot. The new Hera Pheri will be both amusing and sad, which was another aspect of the previous movie's appeal. It expressed very powerful sentiments about the problems of the average person. He firmly feels that the new Hera Pheri won't function until the emotions are in the appropriate place.
When asked how he responded to the rumours that Kartik Aaryan will be taking over for Akshay in the movie as someone who has been involved with the series for a long time, Suneil said that Kartik was never going to replace Akshay in the movie, as he has always maintained. Kartik is a remarkable newcomer to the scene, but he cannot take Akshay's position. Since Akshay will always be known as Raju, the audience won't accept a replacement for Raju. Kartik was a brand-new character. However, Suneil said that he has no idea who will play that role now or what will happen to that character. Akshay, meanwhile, wished to join the franchise. He is aware of whatever happened between him and the producer, but every time they have spoken in the past, Akshay has insisted that this movie be their main priority. Sure, this is a movie they should work on, and he also concurred.
Suniel continued by stating that as long as Farhad remains committed to the screenplay, he doesn't think there is any issue with Farhad Samji directing the movie rather than Anees Bazmee. As the performers are just as invested in the project as the director is, several directors are now connected to this movie. With this movie, none of them is going to seem foolish. After all, they don't want any future errors to affect the famed Hera Pheri. They are content even if it isn't as fantastic but even slightly resembles the original, and they can still produce a decent movie. All Suneil could say at this time was that Farhad did a tremendous job scripting the movie. The second part of the year is when they should mostly get going.
When asked about Sanjay Dutt's appearance in the movie as a don, Suniel stated that the first thing that comes to mind while thinking about this is the fact that it's the first time he has heard of this phrase. His comedic timing and body language will give this project more traction. Sanjay will take it a step farther, and they have a great relationship that one will see on screen as well.
