However, after several rounds of meetings, he has decided to take a step back, as he couldn’t align with the broad script ideas.”
The source also added that how Kumar is aware of his fans' expectations, however, he refused the projects due to the quality of the scripts as he's not ready to compromise and make these sequels without proper thought.
On the other hand, there is no official statement has been made by the makers about Aaryan's involvement in Hera Pheri 3 as of now.
