We have seen a dozen of successful Hindi film series over the years, but when it comes to a comic-caper franchise, no list is complete without mentioning the Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty and Paresh Rawal starrer Hera Pheri (2000).
The series has seen the release of two films so far and the audience is now waiting for the next instalment with bated breath. Titled Hera Pheri 3, the project has been in the pipeline for several years now, but if fresh reports are to be believed, the makers may begin production by the end of the year.
“At present, the film is in the scripting stage. (Director) Indra Kumar has been working with his team of writers on the story since May last year and has already locked the first half, while the second half requires some more work. He will jump into it after the release of his upcoming directorial Total Dhamaal,” a well-placed source reveals.
The source goes on to add, “Delays happened due to issues in the script. Hera Pheri is an iconic franchise and the team is no hurry to take it on floors. Though everyone is excited, no one wants to compromise on the script.”
If all goes well, Hera Pheri 3 will enter cinemas in 2020.
