Hera Pheri 3

Hera Pheri 3 will star Kartik Aaryan, confirms Paresh Rawal


Hera Pheri 3 has been in process for a while, and while producers or cast members of the original movies would occasionally make statements, fans have yet to learn anything substantial regarding the third entry in the well-known franchise. However, it appears that the franchise has recently been given new life. Kartik Aaryan’s participation in Hera Pheri 3 was announced by actor Paresh Rawal on Friday.

A Twitter user questioned the actor on Friday: “@SirPareshRawal Sir, is it true that Kartik Aaryan is doing Hera Pheri 3??”  The actor responded, “Yes it’s true,” to this.

Recently, rumours have circulated that Akshay Kumar may soon bring back the Hera Pheri, Welcome, and Awara Pagal Deewana franchises. Recent reports, however, indicated that Akshay was not persuaded by the sequels’ vision.

It is unknown if Akshay Kumar would still be involved in the project now that Kartik Aaryan has joined the cast. Producer Firoz Nadiadwala revealed that the original cast of Hera Pheri 3—Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty, and Paresh Rawal—would return in an interview in June.

He told “You’ll get to see it very soon with the same star cast – Akshay ji, Paresh bhai and Suniel ji. The story is in place, and we are working on certain modalities. It’ll be made in the same way, retaining the innocence of the characters. We can’t take past achievements for granted. So, we have to be extra careful in terms of our content, story, screenplay, characters, mannerisms etc.”

A Twitter thread between Akshay and Suniel in September also gave fans hope that the movie will be announced shortly. The actors used each other’s movie character names during this conversation.

The first Hera Pheri movie, which was helmed by Priyadarshan, came out in 2000. Since the movie was so successful, a sequel was produced in 2006 under the direction of Neeraj Vora. Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, which originally starring Akshay Kumar, was previously replaced by Kartik. The movie became one of the top successes of 2022.
