One of the blockbuster film ‘Hera Pheri’ which released in the year 2000 became a cult classic. The comedy film that starred Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty, Paresh Rawal and Tabu in key roles could be labelled as one of the best comedy films of all time.
And then happened ‘Phir Hera Pheri’ (part 2) that released six years later, and fans were impressed with the sequel as well.
Hera Pheri 3 was reportedly in the works but writer Neeraj Vora suffered a massive stroke last October and has been bed-ridden since then.
Speaking about the third installment Suniel said to a leading tabloid, “Hera Pheri is a huge franchise, one of the first few films to have had a successful sequel (Phir Hera Pheri, 2006). All the characters — Raju (Akshay Kumar), Shyam (Suniel) and Babu Bhai (Paresh Rawal) — have stayed with the audience and there is a brand recall. As co-stars too, we get along like a house on fire. We must make it [part 3] for fans.”
On Neeraj Vora, he said, “I believe he is doing better now. Once he is fit, we will roll out the film.”
So it’s clear that ‘Hera Phera 3’ will happen, but when and how is something we’ll have to wait and watch.
