Not so long back, there were heavy rumours that John Abraham has replaced Akshay Kumar to be a part of the famous trio in the third installment of Hera Pheri. Akki fans! Don’t get too disappointed as the Mardas Cafe actor has not yet signed on the dotted line. In fact producer Firoz Nadiadwala, is still contemplating on who will direct the film. This will ultimately decide as to who will play the main lead – John or Akshay.
The third installment of the most hilarious franchise will tentatively be titled as Hera Pheri 4. The movie will star Akshay if it is directed by Neeraj Vora, who had written Hera Pheri and Phir Hera Pheri. However, there are heavy rumours that Anees Bazmee might end up directing the movie. And if that happens, then John is more likely to be cast in the lead role. “If I direct the film, it will star Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty and Paresh Rawal — the original cast of Hera Pheri. Of course, producer Firoz Nadiadwala will take the final call,” Vora was quoted by a tabloid.
On the other hand, Bazmee, who is currently directing Welcome Back – also produced by Firoz – said, “Firoz and John are very keen that I direct the film and I would love to do so. But before that I want to finish work on Welcome Back and start shooting for No Entry Mein Entry.”
Hmmm… guess all we can do is wait and watch what happens with Hera Pheri 3! Stay tuned to this space for further updates!
