Fans can start jumping with joy already

Fans of the Hera Pheri franchise can start jumping in joy if you are reading this, as the third installment of the film is surely happening. According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, producer Firoz Nadiadwala is gearing up to revive the franchise. “The project was locked last month after the three actors gave their dates. It will be shot in a start-to-finish schedule between December 2018 and February 2019 and will release in the second half of next year,” a source close to the development told the tabloid. The third film will be directed by Indra Kumar, who has helmed films like Masti and Dhamaal.

It was 18 years agothat the first Hera Pheri film hit the theatres. Directed by Priyadarshan, it starred Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty and Paresh Rawal as as Raju, Shyam and Baburao Ganpatrao Apte respectively. The film emerged as one of the one of the most successful comedies in Bollywood. Then in 2006, the late actor-writer director Neeraj Vora directed the sequel, Phir Hera Pheri. It worked wonders yet again, making Hera Pheri 3 inevitable. 

The report further suggests that Neeraj had locked the story, screenplay and dialogue by 2014. In fact, the pre-production had begun in Delhi during the summers of 2016, but then Neeraj slipped into a coma in October. Firoz moved Neeraj, who was his friend into his own home and ensured that he got the best medical care. But as fate had it, Neeraj passed away on December 14, 2017.

There were rumours that John Abraham might replace Akshay in the third film, but now it is Akshay, Suniel and Paresh who will star in the third film too.
