It should be illegal for someone to call himself a Bollywood buff if he has not watched the Hera Pheri franchise. The franchise’s first film called Hera Pheri released in 2000, and its sequel Phir Hera Pheri released in 2006. Both films starred three pioneers of the Bollywood Film Industry; Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty & Paresh Rawal in the leading roles.
The Hera Pheri franchise is considered one of the cult classics of Bollywood. And if you too are one among its lakhs of fans, this news can make your day brighter. Many reports were continuously suggesting the third film of the franchise will be announced soon. And it looks like the day is near. Firoz Nadiadwala who owns the Hera Pheri franchise is in serious plans of making Hera Pheri 3 soon.
In an exclusive interview with Pinkvilla, a source close to the development revealed, “Firoz Nadiadwala is in conversation with producer Anand Pandit for Hera Pheri 3. The two have been discussing all the possible permutations and combinations to bring the 3 idiots – Raju, Shyam and Baburao – back together, however, the things are not there on paper yet. Probably in next month or so, everything by god’s grace will be clear.”
Not only the films; Hera Pheri and Phir Hera Pheri are two of the best evergreen Hindi comedies ever made, but characters Raju, Ghanshyam aka Shaam and Baburao are also superhit cult characters. Hence, the true Hera Pheri and cinema fans are demanding to once again see this unbeatable trio together on silver screens.
And the good news isn’t ending here, as not only Hera Pheri 3 but Firoz Nadiadwala are also planning to start working on Welcome 3. Just like the Hera Pheri franchise, Welcome is another hit comedy franchise of Bollywood.
The fans are extremely excited for these two projects to finally go on the floor. The official announcements are expected to be made by next year.
