Although the cast of the movie wasn’t confirmed, Akshay Kumar confirmed his presence in the movie. While the actor has been busy promoting his upcoming movie Gold, recently, at the special screening of Gold in New Delhi, Akshay talked about Hera Pheri 3. During a media interaction, the actor was asked about the movies and roles he’d want to do in the future and to this, Akshay replied, “Ek kisam ki filmein nahi, sirf social filmein nahi balki Housefull 4 kar raha hoon, Hera Pheri 3 bhi kar raha hoon. Toh aise bahut saari filmein hai.”
“The movie 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,” as stated by a Mumbai Mirror. Hera Pheri 3 will be directed by Indra Kumar.
The first film Hera Pheri was the remake of 1989 Malayalam film Ramji Rao Speaking. It was directed by Priyadarshan and released in 2000. The word of mouth really worked wonders for the film and it became a commercial success. Then, came the second installment Phir Hera Pheri, under a new director Neeraj Vora.
